Project has a requirement to access PDF files on remote servers.  This is currently being done in one environment created on a Windows machine with a JCA file that specifies the directory this way:

<property name="PhysicalDirectory" value="//mexmtyns11/SIDH2EAM/"/>

The syntax // works with a domain created on Windows OS but will not allow connection to an external file server running Linux OS.

Can the same be accomplished against a remote connection with SOA domain created on a Linux machine?
