GetLastWriteTime for files on network



I'm trying to use ASP.NET (VB.NET) to get the last update date for certain
files on our network. These files are NOT on the same computer as the IIS
instance. ASP.NET apps run under the ASPNET user local to the Web server,
and I can't add the ASPNET user to the Windows groups which have permission
to view the files I'm trying to view. Is there an easy way to do this? Or
do I have to run all ASP.NET apps under a different global user id, and give
that user id permissions to the specific folder I need access to?
