Or you could use the QNTC file system.

To read a file from your network the syntax is as follows /QNTC/ServerName/ShareName/Anyfolder/AnyFile.txt

For this to work you need your System i to be in the same domain as the server you need to access. The user from the job accessing the network share needs to be authorized to the share and the ShareName can not be more than 12 characters long.

Accessing /QNTC may take some time the first time (after each ipl) because the system searches your domain looking for servers to catalog.
