    using getURL to access network files

      I am working on an Intranet site and I need a button in Flash to open a file that's on our network share. I know about the getURL function and use it often to link to HTML files that are on the same server as the web files, but I don't know how to use getURL to open external files on the network:


      on (release) {
      getURL("page1.html", "_blank");

      page1.html is located on the webserver but contains a link to \\server1\share1\document1.doc (server1 is a different server on our network)

      I want to eliminate the middle man and link directly to document1.doc, but I don't know how to do that with getURL since document1.doc is not on the webserver.

      Thanks for any advice.
