If you're working actually on the server, you could aways use FindFirstFile and FindNextFile to look for files from the web root downward.  (Look in the WinAPI help file.)

> Greyman but I want to get information about websites like IP port assigned, name of website or read/write site properties (Log settings, access settings, DefaultDoc, ScriptMaps, etc.) is it possible with FindFirstFile ?

Here I am. Well, it's not very hard. You need to use an IEnumVariant to enumerate all objects in a AD container. This works like this:

     FEnum: IEnumVariant;

     FEnum:=((IUnknown(Container) as IADsContainer)._NewEnum) as IEnumVariant;

then you can iterate through the items:

     FItem: OLEVariant;
     Result: LongBool;


As long as result stays True, you will have a valid item in FItem. Note that after creating the enumarator you have to call Next to get the first item (or a FALSE result if there are no items).

To check what kind of object you got in the enumaration item FItem, use the FItem.Class property which holds a string with the name of the class you're dealing with in FItem.
