authontify nt users throw VB6

Dear experts,

Is there a way to verify user name and password from a windows 2000 workstation to a windows NT4 or windows 2000 server throw Visual Basic?

And if no with VB6 is it with VB.NET?

And if it is possible can I run this application when the windows 2000 is not Logged on.

Thanks in advance

you can either convert the vb code to vb.net or make dll in vb and use it in vb.net.
