App.Config configSource to a UNC path or Shared drive

I want to have the local App.config point to one on a Shared drive.

From what I understand the configSource attribute must be a relative physical path for security purposes.

So the question is it at all possible to have <ConnectionStrings ConfigSource = (UNC path or mapped drive as it's destination)>

I've tried and failed but maybe one of you may know something I don't.

You can use the mklink command to create a symbolic link (/d parameter) to the UNC path. Then you would have something that appears to be relative to the site's directory, but is actually external.
