points for jkr

>>can we have messageboxes in a service???,

Yes - all you need is to set MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION. Alternatively, use 'OutputDebugString()' and a
viewer like e.g. http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/debugview.shtml ("DebugView").

your above comment helped me a lot and made my life easy,
the debug view is nice and thankx for the api "OutputDebugString" i ,i am really using it a lot.

so i am alloting 200 points for this question and 'A' grade for sure.

now i am struck with a problem,
myservice is calling a thread,
inside my thread i am trying to connect to ftp site ,when its unable to connect ,and if exception is raised, i am handling the exception also but whats happening is as soon as exception is raised the service is struked and its not ending at all.
plz help

Have you tried

CFtpConnection *ftp;
         try{
         ftp = session.GetFtpConnection(rules.sFTPInIP,rules.sFTPInUser,rules.sFTPInPassword);
         }
         catch(CInternetException *p)
         {
                        char acBuf [ 1024];
                        OutputDebugString("Not Connected .....);
                        sprintf ( acBuf, "Reason %d\n", p->m_dwError);
                        OutputDebugString(acBuf);
                        delete p; // this is important!
                             return;
         }

So, the exception never gets caught?

Is your server running as "LocalSystem"? If so, set it to run under a differnt user, as "LocalSystem" has absolutely no network access rights - this could explain your problem...

srithiAuthor Commented:
i din't get you,
but let me explain the current situation,

i am working on a pc which is connected to a lan ,and i access the internet through the proxy,actually this service will run on server but what i want is, if it executed on some workstation then it should say that "u are not on the server hence you cannnot connect to the internet"
hope u understood my sitatuion,

thankx for your time.

OK, which user account does the server run under? Is your server running as "LocalSystem"? If so, set it to run under a differnt user, as "LocalSystem" has absolutely *no* network access rights - this would explain your problem...
