```Hi All,

I am using pdf Latex to insert hyperlinks into a pdf. I am using the
following syntax.

\href{Path}{Text}

The above syntax does not work if the link is pointing to a  PDF file when
the Path is absolute UNC path. It only works for relative Paths.
For Example:

Manual/M1-0_SophosEnterpriseConsole_AtulN_051106.pdf}{M1-0-SophosEnterpriseC
onsole-AtulN-051106.pdf}

This works without any problems when the resulting pdf file is placed in a
folder parellel to System administration folder. Only problem with this is
that the link does not work if the pdf file is moved to some other folder.
When the absolute path is specified, the link to the pdf file does not work.
