connect to directory, another pc RemoteAccessHelper.NetworkConnection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to connect to another computer in same domain to download files. i use

                    string m_rep = null;
                    m_rep = @"\\"+p_Ip+@"\c$\toli\rel\out";
                    var oNetworkCredential = new System.Net.NetworkCredential() { Domain = p_Ip, UserName = @"\\" + p_Ip + @"\c$\" + "user", Password = "pwd" };
                    using (new RemoteAccessHelper.NetworkConnection(@"\\" + p_Ip+@"\c$", oNetworkCredential))
                        foreach (var v_MyFile in Directory.GetFiles(m_rep, m_fichierDuJour))

    this code works for the greater part of the computers, but for some computers i have an error {"Error connecting to remote share"}.

    I dont undestand because i can connect with windows explorer.


    any ideas?

  • Hi 3NIMA,

    I've checked that class named RemoteAccessHelper, it is not a class that belongs to .Net Framework class libraries.

    Here is what I found about RemoteAccessHelper class.

    >>Based on the error:{"Error connecting to remote share"}.

    The related WNetAddConnection2 function makes a connection to a network resource. The function can redirect a local device to the network resource.

    Please check wnetaddconnection2 (mpr) for more information.

    I also suggest you compare worked machine with failed machine, I suppose that WNetAddConnection2 function dose not support a specific environment.
