Access network share from ASP.NET


Y

Yuriy Galanter

Hi all,

I need to access a file on a network share from an ASP.NET application
(using methods like file.readalltext). Of course ASP.NET doesn't have access
to that share. But I do have both UserID and password of a user who does
have access. How do I use them to supply credentials for file.readalltext
method (similar how I can do that for WebClient with NetworkCredentials)?

Thanks!

Yuriy.

Quickest way is impersonation with asp.net.

Inside of

<system.web>


<authentication mode="Windows" />
<identity impersonate="true" userName="mycompany\myname" password="mypwd"
/>

</system.web>


That should give you something to search on.

Here you go....Exactly what you want without using impersonation.

#region WIN API Declarations

//used in calling WNetAddConnection2

[StructLayout(LayoutKind.Sequential)]

public struct NETRESOURCE

{

public int dwScope;

public int dwType;

public int dwDisplayType;

public int dwUsage;

int iLen = (int)st.Length;

byte []b = new byte[iLen];

st.Read(b, 0, iLen);

finally
