Hyperlinking to images on a local file server

We have been trying several different ways to create a hyperlink within a pop-up that will open up an image stored on our local file server.  Every time the link doesn't do anything.  We tried publishing directly from ArcMap with the hyperlink as a field and defining field-based hyperlink properties.  We've tried publishing a related table with the hyperlinks that way too.  Nothing seems to work!


As I understand it, AGOL supports linking to photos found on http or https URLs, but surely someone has come up with a way to link to local images (either using "file://" or "\\")?  We don't want to go down the path of publishing these as attachments, for storage and security reasons.  Any help would be appreciated!
