Read a file off a UNIX server from PC
I need to open and read a file off a server on our local network.
I am converting a VB program that can read the file with a path name of \\10.1.0.14\u\AG1 and it works just as well if the file was on the local PC with a path of C:\.... The VB programmer said the double backslashes were neccesary to succesfully open and read the file in VB is there some specific syntax to make this work for C++?
I was wondering if this is possible with C++ without FTPing the file back from the server to the local machine.

Thank you, I just found out that there needs to be some special software on the UNIX box for this to work. Thank you.
