Hi guys. I bet quite a number of you have already used FlashGet, ReGet, Bat etc etc or one of the many analogue programs to download your files. Now, all of them work similarly: you basically enter your file location, using the absolute address as in eg 'http://www.somesite.com/dir/dir2/filetodownl.oad'. Obviously, same story with raw IP stuff ''...

All this melancholy goes down the drain when I try to connect to a shared resource and get a file such as '\\\c\testfile' with or without the first two slashes (the loopback's used as an example). Whichever way (forward/backslashes), I can't connect, when using one of the afore-mentioned 'downloaders'. Normal Copy&Paste works, when browsing the shared resource, whereas these nifty proggies, don't. Any ideas?
