C#.NET reading remote host directory contents

Hi all,

I am trying to create a webpage that reads in the name of a host from
the user and then attempts to read the contents of this host, in order
to search for a particular type of file.
So once i have the hostname, something like:

1. Attempt to access <host>\share\dir
2. If success, read thru directory listing looking for certain
filetypes.
3. If found, process these files. Then output something back to user.

The problem i have is step 1... anyone know if it's possible to get
that done in a nice way, and have a directory structure to look thru?
The hosts in question are all on a LAN, with user ids,passwords,shares
setup so that i know them in advance.

Thanks.

Hi,

To access a share on a LAN, your web application should have valid
rights to access the folder.

By defaul web application runs under ASPNET account.
Impersonate your web application with valid NT credentials in the
web.config file.

Cheers,
Kris
