Hello folks,

The following code snippet causes an exception "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password".

     Process p = new Process();
     p.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false; // only executables; no docs like Run.
     p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
     p.StartInfo.Arguments = @"www.yahoo.com";
     p.StartInfo.FileName = @"\\my-remote-machine-name\C$\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ping.exe";
     //p.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\\WINNT\\SYSTEM32\\ping.exe";
     p.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
     p.Start();
     string output = p.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
     p.WaitForExit();

To use shared folders in that remote machine, I supply my credentials.
How do I pass that user name and password for the above code to work?

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Thank you,
Parvinder

Thank you, that worked.

I added ASPNET as username and a cleartext password in machine.config.
Also I created ASPNET user on the remote machine.

I'm not sure if cleartext password in machine.config is safe.
And what privilages should the ASPNET account on the remote machine have?

I am afraid that I can't really help you with these supplemental questions as I am just learning .Net now. Perhaps you might ask these in the ASP.Net topic area?

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/ASP_DOT_NET/

Perhaps someone there can help.

Good luck,
