Yes, that's possible! There's only one problem: Delphi does provide a wrapper for the API functions you need (The svrapi.dll in Windows95 and netapi32.dll in WindowsNT).

The functions you need are:

NetShareEnum: enumerates all the shares you've got
NetSessionEnum: enumerates all the (network)-sessions
NetFileEnum: enumerates open files (via network!)

When you use these API functions you will be able to make a program like MS Netwatcher. An example of a Netwatcher source for WindowsNT is available at the Microsoft MSDN homepage.

Disconnecting users works as follows:
NetSessionDel: disconnect the user using that session

I don't know how to set access rights, but I assume there are some functions in the NetApi32.dll like:
NetAccessEnum
NetAccessAdd etc.

I hope this will help.

No, I don't have some sample code. But I think the following will work:

Example for NetShareEnum:
declare NetShareEnum to be external from svrapi.dll

function NetShareEnum(
    LPTSTR servername,      (pointer to string (PChar))
    DWORD level,      
    LPBYTE * bufptr,      (pointer to byte)
    DWORD prefmaxlen,      
    LPDWORD entriesread,(pointer to word)      
    LPDWORD totalentries,      ""
    LPDWORD resume_handle  ):NetApiStatus; external svrapi.dll;

You've to provide a mapping between the types used in Windows API and the ones used by Delphi.

Then it's possible to use the function. To find a description of the function and his parameters you can look in the helpfiles.

Succes,

Arjan
