Accesing the C drive remotely and executing an application

Eva
Hi All

Is it possible to connect to a remote machine running a vb.net application, access the C drive on the remote machine and execute an exe from the server programatically

Hi,

This depends largely on security issues (rights) that are in place. If you
have the access rights needed, then you may execute objects remotely. I
think you want to look into the Remoting subject. There is an example on
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/dow...es/default.asp and I'm sure
that other VB examples may be found using google.

Thankyou Grier

I will get my vb.net copy only after 2 weeks. In the meanwhile, I wanted to understand the concept of executing applications remotely (passing parameters from the server to the remote exe and executing the remote exe). If you could explain how it works or give me a link where the concept is explained, it would be great
