You need the WinNT option pack which includes a utility called uptime.exe. This returns the information you want.

You then need to place that utility (which is normally placed in the system32 directory to which the IIS account doesn't have access to) into a directory which the IIS account has been given permissions.

Now use a program like ASPExec or a custom COM object to call the application and then parse the results to display on the page. ASPExec is free, and can be downloaded here:

http://www.serverobjects.com/comp/Aspexec.zip 

Hope that helps. Please post comments if you need clarifacation before you decide to decline my answer if the case may be.

By the way, ASPExec is a COM object itself, and needs to be registered with regsrv32.exe before you can use a Server.CreateObject to put it on an ASP.

It's not the option pack... it's the NT Resource Kit.

www.microsoft.com

I am farely sure it's free... if not, i can provide you with a link to download uptime.exe, after all, that's a free program.

Hi CoolAss, UPTIME.EXE is neither in the option pack or in the Resource kit version that I have but I did found it on microsoft.com as you suggested and it works (Though not as good as in the good old Novell days :) )

Anyway, the combination with ASPExec works super so thank you for the advice.
