Hi experts,
I need to copy some files from password-protected folders via LAN. I guess there should be 2 (or more) ways to do it.
- First way is to use Windows API function within VB code.
-The other one is to use VB6.0 itself FileSystemObject.
I can easily copy files if folders that contain the files are NOT password-protected: Using
VB6.0 FileSystemObject just setting like
               
         FSys.CopyFile "\\RemoteMachine\Folder1\*.txt",  "\c:\MyFilesFolder"

where FSys is VB6.0  FileSystemObject.

My problem is Folder1 is now password-protected.

Need a help to solve this task.
Thanks in advance,
Ganna

Prior to copy you can authenticate to the target machine...

Shell "net use  \\MachineName\c$ /user:username password", vbHide
or
Shell "net use  \\MachineName\MyFilesFolderShare /user:username password", vbHide

Then copy away!

Thanks for the help. It gives no error, but doesn't work. Could you please be more in detail, i.e, provide code fragment or refer something

I didn't realize that net use is a MS DOS command. It works now. Thanks.
