I've been talking to Rob Beckers about this problem, and he being
very cooperative to get a special build of Serv-U that supports
UNCs. This build will only be available from us and is specifically
patched to support Emerald/UNCs. If you have Serv-U 2.5 running with
UNCs and would like to try this version, please send mail DIRECTLY
to myself, and I will get it to you. I'm looking for a couple of
people to try it and make sure there are no problems, then we will
put it on our FTP site.
