Accessing Windows Network Share?

I previously posted about accessing SharePoint over the web. Well I
have since given up any easy means of doing this, since something else
has perked my interest. Instead of going to http://sharepoint/site,
why not just access \\sharepoint\site\ directly?

So my question is this - How do I access that network share?

If I go to start -run, and type in "\\SharPointServer\Site\Folder",
windows explorer will pop up with it. I suppose I could have a little
batch script that python runs to map the drive to a local letter, like
J:, but this does not seem necessary.

Suggestions?

This does not work, for obvious reasons:
>>import glob.glob
glob.glob("\\\\server\\folder\\*")
[]
Thanks guys!

I don't see whats "obvious" about this. Access to windows shares is
handled by Windows in a VFS layer, and glob and all other Python file
access works fine over them for me.

Haha ok, you're right its not obvious. Sorry for that.

But that code does not work - should it?

Do you have an example of glob working over a file share, not a
network mapped drive?

import glob
glob.glob(r"\\localhost\c$\python25\libs\*")
['\\\\localhost\\c$\\python25\\libs\\bz2.lib',
'\\\\localhost\\c$\\python25\\libs\\libpython25.a' ,
'\\\\localhost\\c$\\python25\\libs\\pyexpat.lib',

I do it all the time. I'd double check your slash escaping (consider
using r'') and pathnames.

I must have been doing it wrong. Thanks! That works great!
