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.

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...
