I do not think this is possible in LaTeX. You have to do it at the system
level. Just mount the network drive to some directory, like /mnt/Shared.
You can do it via samba (if it is a windows system) or via NFS (if it is
a linux/mac system). You can find plenty of tutorials on how to do it.
Once you have mounted your shared network folder /mnt/Shared, then you
can give the command
in the preamble to instruct graphicx to search images also in
In your document then you do need to give the full path to
includegraphics when loading an image
If there is an image myimage.jpg in /mnt/Shared/image, then it will be
loaded. Actually, you do need the extension .jpg, too.
