HI Guys,

I have mvc project and I would like to show image files on my pages, these images located in the UNC path on one of my server at work.

How do I access to the network location let's say "\\server\test\file.jpg" and show the image on my page.
I was trying to use the IO assembly and do it but no luck.

Thank you.

You can not access network locations for security reasons, you should map your network folder to IIS Virtual Directory and then access just like any other folder in you site.
See Create IIS Virtual Directories for steps on how to create one.
