You might be able to use file://Server2/Vol1/Policy/policy1.doc .
However, all of the browsers generally come with protections in place
that prevent the use of the file:// urls except for pages coming
from the local filesystem or from trusted zones. So, you may need
to adjust security settings in the browser a bit.
Another possibility might be to have PmWiki access and return
the pages on the browser's behalf, assuming that the machine
running PmWiki has access to \\Server2\Vol1\Policy .
Accessing links to files from within http:// pages is just a bit
messy, no matter how one slices it.
