I have a network file share and i want to hyperlink to the network file share using http protocol.

For example:

Network file share: \asgfgrexe\Network\marketing

http URL to hyperlink : http://asgfgrexe/Network/marketing

Is it possible to access the network file share like a http url?

No, because file shares use their own protocol (file:// is just one example). You would need a service that ran on top of the file share which provided the http:// protocol.
