    Default Authenticating on a remote domain via ASP.Net

    I have been struggling with this for a little while now.
    Let me explain my problem:
    I have a remote domain and a workgroup.
    I have an IIS server running on the workgroup.
    When I log into the IIS server I can map a drive located on the domain and
    can authenticate with a domain aco fine. Now I want to manipulate some
    directories and files on the remote share located on the domain from ASP.NET.
    I have tried all kinds of things to help authenticate but nothing seems to
    work.

    I can create a separate VB.NET application which uses net use to map the
    drive and that application then has access to be able to modify files. I then
    tried running this application via ProcessStartInfo, but it doesnt work.
    Also tried creating the same username/password on the IIS Server that has the
    domain access, and telling IIS to use this account as the default, but it
    didnt work either.

    Any suggesstions/ideas?
    Thanks!

    I am running Windows 2003 Server on the machine with IIS on it.
    All the machines that will be browsing to that web server will be running
    Windows XP, until we migrate to Vista (a long time from now!)

    I just got it to work. I changed the application pool setting in IIS to
    MSSharePointAppPool

    Hello Alan via DotNetMonster.com,

    that's no solution!

    what are the difference between your default app pool and the sharepoint one?
