Hi,

You get this message when another connection exists already (or still) between your computer and the one you try to connect with (i.e. accessing a shared folder) but with a different name-password pair.

So, try to determine who's connected to that computer.
On WinNT for example choose "Server" in the control panel and then click the "Users" button.

I expect you to see a connection you weren't aware of.

Bye.

You cannot access *any* network functions from a service when this service is set to run under LocalSystem. To overcome this, make sure to assign your service to run under a predefined user account (preferrably one belonging to the admin group) which does have network access (this is usually done by specifying an account name&password in the call to 'CreateService()', but you're also able to change this from the 'services' control panel applet).

I am using smae technique and passing user name and password in "CreateService", but I am getting error in system log. Error is "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.". I am using administrator account user name and password. What could be the reason???

You have to assign the 'Logon as a service' provilege to the account you are using. If you are using NT, you can do that using the user manager, on W2k, the 'Local Security Policy' MMC will allow you to do that (execute "mmc secpol.msc /s" on the command line)
