Remotely obtaining computer and user details using vb.net
Posted on 2011-09-28
I'm trying to write a File Monitoring piece of software. I need help or some pointers in how to obtain the user details and machine details of the person making changes to the files:
A network shared volume that is accessed by 50+ users. I want to have a piece of software sitting directly on the server that is monitoring the drive. When ever a file action is taken i want to know:
IP Address coming from
I am using FileSystemWatcher to monitor the folder, that part is working ok at present.
I would prefer not to have to install a service / app on each of the users machine.
Any examples / pointers on achieving this would be appreciated.
