Description:
------------
On my IIS-Website I've got a "Virtual Directory", which's target is on another server as share. When I try to get a file (eg. include 'directory_on_other_server/test.php';) from there over the include-function it doesn't work and I have a blank screen.

Is this a known issue?
How can I solve this problem?

OK, I found the solution: You have to include the full address e.g. http://server/directory. Now it works.

Thanks a lot for your help.

I found a workaround for the "Virtual Directory" bug. I just used the local path. It seems to work on IIS 6.0. I setup a virtual directory on our Windows 2003 server and then instead of using:
<?PHP
require(dirname(__FILE__)."/name_of_virtual_directory/your_file_here.php");
?>

I used:
<?php
require("C:/websites/name_of_virtual_directory/your_file_here.php");
?>

Try it, it worked for me.
