I am writting a program to automate a file copying process to a server machine. We'll call the Server Bob.
My computer is JBaisden. To access Bob, or at least, to access the C drive you must enter a user name and password. I have this information; however, my problem is this: I am using a FolderBrowserDialog (VB .NET 2005) to set the file paths that determine what files are to be backed up and what files are to be copied. This control/dialogue allows me to browse to Bob, but only shows shared folders. I really need to browse to Bob's C drive and work from there. Given that I know the user name and password, how do I go about making this happen?
I have tried using text boxes so the user can enter the folder path manually, but I'm getting a wierd file access error to a file that I'm trying to copy. Also note that this occurrs on Jbaisden when I am not going across a network to access files (This was a test scenerio that I am still having trouble with).
Any idea's, articles, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
