I have a server-client application. Server side runs on NT with IIS 3.0. I have 2 questions:

1. How to add users to NT domain from inside my server-side application. I need to dynamically to add or demove users from the machine domain (during run time and based on user input to my application).

2. Is there a way to set the FTP directory and alias from inside my application.

I know that I can do 1 and 2 from NT adminstration programs but I need to do them from my application.

I hope someone will post me a code or show me the API to do that.

Thanks

I don't think these functions are documented. But if you really want to get to these functions, they are in NETUI0.DLL, NETUI1.dll, and NETUI2.dll. The one that seems the most interesting is NETUI1.dll.

Thank you Thui, but how can I use them from *.DLL without documentation? If you have experience with them or can show me a sample code it will be great.

Commented:
if you have access to a debugger, you can get the gist of how they work by analyzing what gets popped and pushed from the stack when you call them when you experiment.

I know you can direct ftp to run as a script and in the script its possible to use the commands to set your local directory.

Thnaks for the answer.
The NetUserDel , NetUserAdd functions seem to be what I am looking for in part 1 of my question. I am testing them now.

FtpGetCurrentDirectory, FtpSetCurrentDirectory do not seem to be the functions that I can use to _create_ a new  FTP directory and alias from inside my application.

I will accept your answer for now but I will appreciate any comments about FTP account creation on NT.
