I have a program that needs to do a dir on a unc path.  This path will need username / password to get to.

How do I go about his in VB.Net?

Thanks,

Rog

You need to Impersonate the user in question.  Please check the sample code on the page below.  Your dir code should go in the Using impersonatedUser As WindowsImpersonationContext = newId.Impersonate() block.  Remove all the Console.Write and you should be good to go.
