[R] Reading files form a server in windows

I'm just wondering about file name syntax.

Instead of 

stuff <- read.table("e:/statcourses/stuff.dat")

I'd like to be able to do

stuff <- read.table("ptolemy/statcourses/stuff.dat")


stuff <- read.table("ptolemy.math.waikato.ac.nz/statcourses/stuff.dat")

that is, I'd like to be able to read a file from a server without
necessarily mounting the server as a drive letter on the PC.

Is that do-able?
