FAQ: Can I use UNCs in my map configuration file?

Question

Can I use UNCs in my map configuration file?

Answer

Yes. UNC (universal naming convention) pathnames instead of mapped drives can be used in map configuration files; UNC is the \\ part of a Windows network pathname.

Note:
You cannot use UNC pathnames in the Open Project dialog box (ArcIMS Author and ArcExplorer—Java edition) or the New MapService dialog box (ArcIMS Administrator and ArcIMS Manager).


Note:
Using UNCs may result in slower performance.
