Hi,

What do I have to do in order to view server files(UNIX) from a windows machine using JFileChooser? Sample code would be very helpful.

Thanks

I need to do it programatically, so I can incorporate the behavior into my application.

I am not sure you can do it automatically. You can do it manually as: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308582/
Remember in order to have this working, the unix server should be running samba like applications

As already stated the drive has to be mounted in order to see it. If it is then you access it like any other drive. This is how it is done in windows explorer as well, you first mount the drive ansd then you see it.

We have decided to use a FTP object to connect to a FTP server on the UNIX box. We developed our FileSystem objects and use the Java File chooser to traverse the server directories.

However, the first answer given is the best way to go if you don't use an FTP server.

the problem is, mounting may not be possible for a machine in different network and its killing job for ITES due to various security reasons.
