Accessing a Shared Folder in ASP

How can I access a shared folder through ASP?  I am using integrated secuirty on this particular page, but it appears that the local IUSR user is still trying to access the share.  I changed the default user account to a domain user that has access to the share, but that didn't work either.

Thanks much.

Just give the local use IUSR permission to have full control over the shared page, as well as USER Group

The folder I am trying to access from ASP is on a different server than the IIS Server.  I can not give the local IUSR access to that folder without having a parellel user account with the same username and password, and I do not want to do that.

Thanks much.

That server has to have a IUSR name and password, the same as the IUSR name and password if the webserver (Server1), but set up as a local account on the other server.

That is log in as administrator of the other server lets call it (Server 2)

Create a local user called IUSER_SERVER1 on Server 2. Give this user the same password as you use on your webserver for the IUSER_SERVER1 account. Give it access to the files you want to give it access to, and it shold work.

You could check that you have read write access by logging on on your webserver as IUSER_Server1 and browsing to the other server. See if you can read and write to files under that permission, and if you can you should be set.

We use this method tio acess an inward bound fax folder or a fax server machine. I dont know of any other way, and trust me I tried many, inclding previous postings to this group

Well, I gave in and created a parellel user on the file server even though I did not want to.  I was able to get it working when using Anonymous access, but it does not seem to work with integrated windows security, which I need for this particular site.  Is there anyway to keep Integrated Security?

Thanks much

According to Microsoft's KB article I posted earlier, you cannot.
"NTLM and Windows Integrated Authentication (Windows 2000) cannot access remote resources because of a delegation problem"

Well, I got it working.  What I did was keep the web application in Integrated windows authentication, but then sent all the necessary data to a seperate asp file that was using anonymous access.  I did all of my file manipulation with this asp file.

Thanks for your help
