Is Netscape UNC capable?

By mitchberger ·
We are using HTML for links to web pages, documents, and directories in a Windows NT environment NOT through the use of an internet server. All links use UNC coding to overcome drive mapping differences on user's workstations. The problem occurs when we follow a link from a directory list.

Following a link to a directory displays the contents of the directory whether we use Navigator or Explorer. Clicking on a file name in the directory list only works with Explorer. Navigator returns an error "unable to locate server".

It seems that Navigator does not recognize the double-slash prefix that identifies the server name in UNC coded addresses.

We are running Netscape 4.08. Is there some option, upgrade, or other solution to this problem?

From the articles I've read, Netscape does not currently support UNC. Later versions might, as I don't know the date of the articles and they only discussed 4.x versions.
