How do I perform "NET FILE" functions programmatically (winAPI or .Net framework)

I would like to perform the same function as "NET FILE" with a VB.Net application.  That includes listing and closing the open files.  I'm looking for the Windows API calls or, preferrably, .Net framework functions to do this.
1 Solution
The WIN32 API NetFileEnum() is used by the "NET.EXE" utility to retrieve open files from a server.  I can show you how to use this function in a C/C++ application but I have no idea about VB.NET.

Hopefully this is enough information to get you headed in the right direction.
Check out http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/index.html?code/network/netfileenum.htm on 'NetFileEnum()' in VB. Closing will be another problem, though...
