Hi,

I can manually in Windows 7: Type in Run: \\<ip address>\sharedFolder, type in my username and password, a folder opens in Windows Explorer, I can then copy a file to the shared folder.

How can I do this in C#? I can do a File.Copy() but I can't get around the part about specifying the username/password.

Thanks,
Dan

...or run NET USE to connect to \\ServerName\IPC$ with a user and password specified.  Then you can write to the \\ServerName\Share of choice without having to map a drive.

Thanks to both of you. I'll use the NET USE command one way or the other.
