I'm not a cygwin specialist, and i don't know if you can use UNC names with
cygwin ... But as a workaround, you can simply map your network resource
with a local drive by simply use the "connect a network drive" windows
feature, then you can access it through its drive letter, like any other
I use this on some windows box, and it work well !
Hope this help ...
