Map a drive to an ftp share



I build an NT service using the FileSystemWatch er() class to detect when
new files arrive at our ftp server.

Now I want to configure it to watch for files on someone else's remote
server.

Questions:

1. Can I map a drive letter to an ftp share?

2. Do you think the FileSystemWatch er class can respond in the same way
when monitoring a remote ftp site as it does when watching a local
directory?

Specifically, can it raise an event for the creation of a new file on
the ftp directory?

Ok, after a little browsing I find something called the NetHood.

It seems to let me browser my Network Neighborhood places as directories
-- somewhat. I am able to open a cmd window, and cd into the NetHood
and then the ftp sites, with the name ftp.mysite.com being the directory
name.

However It doesn't seem to show the ftp sites in a "logged in" mode.

Is there a way to have them display as they would when logged in via
Windows?

Can I issue a logon at the command line to one of my /NetHood/ sites?

LOL! After spamming XP gen, do you really expect an answer from here?

I guess not -- NetHood isn't what I thought -- it just seems like a
container for some *.lnk files that then perform some magic.

The original query stands.

Hi,

It's an old technique to try and muddy the waters by just attacking a
person randomly.

Unfortunately, the awareness of Usenet is way in advance of the
technology that you use.

Sorry charlie, you would have been a hit in the 90s when people were
first learning about Usenet -- but not here, not now.

Moron you don't define your terms. There is no file watcher class on windows only FileChangeNotif ication object. Explorer uses one of these on every window you have open.

Wow. Maybe you should write MSDN and tell them about this then:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...sctortopic.asp
Initializes a new instance of the FileSystemWatch er class.
Overload List

Initializes a new instance of the FileSystemWatch er class.

[Visual Basic] Public Sub New()

[C#] public FileSystemWatch er();

[C++] public: FileSystemWatch er();

[JScript] public function FileSystemWatch er();




Explorer uses one of these on every window you have open.

Shows how much you know, this is far from random. You are a waste of
life. And the only place and time you would have been a hit would be
would have been before life appeared on the planet.

He is just trolling. Wants to get people to waste their time on him.

Probably correct, given the appearance of your chromosome set at this
date and time.
