How to access a file on another server?

I have load balanced production servers. I have been told that our web farm set up a "shared" folder on both of these servers, meaning I could access this folder from both servers. What happens is the user logs on to server A and wants to view a file. If the file does not exist on server A, I then need to check server B to see if it exists there in the shared folder. I do not know how to do this. Can anyone help me?
Thanks, Donna

The easiest thing to do would be to just use your server operating system's capabilities: shared drives on Windows, NFS on UNIX/Linux, etc.
