```Hi,
I'm having problems when i try to use the function scandir()  in a Novell
Netware Volumen or a Windows Shared Folder
they both are mapped as a windows network drive, so i suppose i could access
them as local drive, but i can't. instead i receive this message:```
```
Warning: scandir(R:\) [function.scandir]: failed to open dir: Invalid argument
in C:\WebServ\wwwroot\htdocs\index.php on line 3
Warning: scandir() [function.scandir]: (errno 22): Invalid argument in
C:\WebServ\wwwroot\htdocs\index.php on line 3

```
```
```
try using the network path instead :) you have to do this for samba drives on windows too.
```
\$dir = '//machine.local/share/path';

ps: many people just don't answer if they do not know
