Hi all.
I am wrting a small content management tool for my company and was
trying to display some images from our file store shown below.
<td> <img src="\\\xx\xx\xxx\abc.gif"/>
The app was displaying the image when it is under the \public\images
Is there anything special we need to do to get a file from outside the
root of the application?

Any help appreciated.
