Hi amielDorel,

If the computer is not running File and Print sharing at all, the you will need a third party client server application, like SMS or LanDesk. If the machine is on a domain and running File and Print Sharing, then you may connect by netbios \\computername\c$.

From the command prompt (Drive mapping):

Net use * \\computername\c$

Cheers!

Thanks
In the case of netbios connection, can the machine and it's drive be visible to the internet (providing the proper ip). ?

Opps.. I misread the title, and focused on the question. I probably gave you the wrong answer. Can you explain, in more detail, exactly what you are trying to do?

I have an ocx stored on a networked machine,  I need to access and load the ocx without setting the machine as a server,
or set a shared drive on that machine, what is the best way to do it (i have the machine IP address),
If I need third party application to add on, please specify which one and if possible where do I get them.

Thanks

Okay... is the networked machine, on a local network accessible without having to go through firewall (or internet)?

Yes, the machine is on a local network, however since you have asked any way to get to it from the internet ? or through firewall ??

The internet or firewall would require a file transfer such as FTP or HTTP, which are server services.
Ok, does the machine have File and Printer sharing enabled, and do you have access to log into the machine with your account. If the answer is yes, then you can access the file through a UNC share.

"\\ipaddress\driveletter$\directory\directory\filename.ocx"

ex . "\\192.168.2.22\c$\windows\system32\admintool.ocx"

This will open a connection to the computer using your credentials, over a hidden system share, allowing access to the file, just as if it were local to your machine.
