In windows you can refer to the path to the network drive, like //server/folder/ wherever you need to access it. On OSX we have been able to access the network drive by mounting it first, but I was wondering if it was possible to skip that step and reference the network location without mapping it on the OSX machine?

You can access it without mounting by using smbclient which would feel similar to a ftp client.
