Enumerating Network Shares

Does anyone have any sample code on enumerating network shares with vb.net.
I here you need to use wither an API or WMI, or are there other
recomendations.

Thanks

If you know the drive letters you could use the following API. Otherwise
you would have to use the WNetEnumResource API call.
anand

Private Declare Function WNetGetConnection Lib "mpr.dll" Alias _
"WNetGetConnectionA" _
(ByVal lpszLocalName As String, _
ByVal lpszRemoteName As String, _
ByRef cbRemoteName As Int32) As Int32
Then use the following code to call this API
Dim y As String
y = Space(100)

WNetGetConnection("Y:", y, 100)
MsgBox(y)
