file system repository on other machine



I am trying to set up a file system repository that looks into a share on another machine. Here are my details:

Active: yes

Hide in Root: no

Send Events: yes

Property Search:

Repository Services: Not set

ACL Manager: ca_rsrc_acl

Security Manager: AclSecurityManager

Prefix: /reports

Lookup mode: caseless

Root Dir: // is the remote machine's ip address that has a share called "reports" on it. I have tried the ip and the fqdn and both don't work. In the component monitor I can see that the repository for "reports" failed to start. When I point the repository to a share on the portal server it works fine, just not to a remote machine. When on the portal server I can look into the share simply by entering "
<fqdn>\reports" in the start run dialogue and I would get no prompts or errors. there something I'm missing?
