IIS FTP Server or Apache Web Server: Virtual Directory

by c-- / May 14, 2010 6:15 PM PDT

Hi,

I'm trying to add a virtual directory which points to a network path.
Let's say the target directory is \\PC\Share\Dir1.
I have mounted this as drive M:.

IIS FTP Server:
When I type "M:\" as base directory (on this computer), its status says that the path cannot be found.
When I type the UNC path (on a network computer), its status says "Access denied". Even entering the login data doesn't change anything.

Apache:
I added this line to the httpd.conf:
Alias /Dir1 M:/
But opening /Dir1 in a browser shows my 404 error page.

Thanks for any hint.
