Hi, i am building a vb.net app and i am required to let the user choose a file on their local drive and upload it to the server which is on the LAN. I was using the file.copy method and copy it to a mapped network drive but the way i am doing it is to...manually map the drive so if i have 100 clients...i will have to map the drive a 100 times? and after mapping the client can just go to my computer and access the drive. are there any better ways of doing this? preferably programmatically. thanks

Rather than mapping, try using the full path in code:
\\servername\folder name\file name

You'll proabbly need ot make sure that permissions are correctly set (i.e. there's a shared folder available)
