    This can be easily done with a single configuration directive:

    Alias /images "E:\complete\path\to\the\folder"

    You will have to activate mod_alias; More info here

    Accepted Solution

    you could do one of 2 things:

    - map the network drive like Z: for example
    - install Apache on the second server so the images are available from the first server like, for example, and in the first server use mod_proxy like this:

    ProxyPass /images
