I tried it but didn't work.  I also tried for the home path,
\\remote_smb_server\%U <file://remote_smb_server/%25U> (replaced
remote_smb_server with the actual remote smb servername) but in the log, it
says "Error was No such file or directory" and it puts forward slash in
front of it,
/\\remote_smb_server\%U in the log...
