Opening Local Files

I have a field on my page layout that is utilized as a file name.

Another field that is a formula to concatenate "file://N:/Folder1/"&{!File_Name__c}&".pdf"
I tested this with the formula Hyperlink and works perfect from the details page.

Within my Visualforce page I have a table for Contacts.


<apex:outputLink value="{!c.URL}">View File</apex:outputLink>
When I test this it does not open a page or do anything. 


Everything has been copied into a sandbox

When I test the same code above the link works.

Is there any differences between a Sandbox server making a call to a local file on my computer as apposed to from Production?



Can you please share the code used in the VF page ?
