I too am encountering the same problem and I tried the method you mentioned here but it still didn't work.
I have set up foxweb 2.6 with Windows 2003. My remote database is residing in my Netware 6.5 server. My Windows 2003 server is logged into the netware server via a netware client and mapped to the netware server.
I have specified the Userid and password of the Windows 2003 user which have access to my netware servers in the properties of the service applet. The foxweb is set to run as a service.
I managed to open the file interactively in VFP via the UNC path but it was unable to open the remote file via executing the foxweb script on the web returning the error that file does not exist.
In the programme it is executed as follows
Use &vPath
(fieldpath is the UNC path stored in DBF and "myfile" is the file name)
Please advise.

You will need to open the Services applet in the Administrative Tools of the Windows Control Center.  Locate the FoxWeb service and open its properties.  In the Log On tab select "This account" and specify a userid and password for a user that has access to the remote resource.
In order to refer to the remote file in your script you must use UNC notation (\\ServerName\Share\Path\FileName).  To verify that everything is correct, log into the server as the FoxWeb service user and try to open the file interactively in VFP, using the same UNC path as what you used in your script.

If you are running FoxWeb as a service running as an account that has access to remote resource (Win 2003 + FoxWeb 2.6).
When I tried to access via Foxweb, the error returned that the file does not exist.
Could you guide me through the steps on setting the service user and script.
