Broken Link on Intranet Page

I've just moved my iis intranet server from 2008 to 2016.  Everything is working fine however, I have one link that is supposed to open a share and for whatever reason it's not working.  It's a simple html page with the \\servername\share\share.  If I open the html page directly on the server and click the link on the html page it works.  However, If I try to open the page from the actual intranet publish it does not.  I've looked at the link on the published page, it is correct.  So I'm confused as to how to solve this issue.

You may need to add permissions / access to the IUSR under which IIS App Pool is running.  To test, change the permissions on the network share to Everyone and see if you can access the link via the web page.  If that works, you know it's a permissions issue.

If that does not work, use F12 developer tools in your browser, and look at the Network tab.  You should be able to see the failed call to the page there, and it will give you an error.  Sometimes that error is helpful, and sometimes it's pretty generic.

I did all that and nothing.  But thanks.  I was wondering if something changed with 2016 because the only way I'm able to make it work is for the page to come up similar to a FTP page where as before it was opening the share on the server.

F12 should at least be showing an error...even if it's not a particularly helpful error.

"something" that changed between 2008 and 2016 is IIS versions.

I've done all that I could.  The only way it's showing up is like a FTP site and my user are going to have to live with that.
