access networked PCs directories/files with R ?

Dear group,

I would like to know if there is an "easy" way to access several networked PCs directories/files from one PC with R ? Concerned OS is windows.

I can for instance use dir() on my current PC. Is there a way to do dir() on a connected PC ?
(Is there a special syntax for the path ?)

(read.table() or readLines() work with URLs
I imagine it may also work on connected shared PCs)

Thanks for any help.
