Hi,<BR><BR>I am trying to access a network drive on the server from my asp .cs code using Directory.GetFiles(aDirectoryPath). In the web.config I have entry &#060;identity impersonate="true" /&#062; and &#060;authentication mode="Windows" /&#062;.<BR><BR>Whats confusing me is that if I force the user identity using &#060;identity impersonate="true" userName="user1" password="abc"/&#062; things work. How is forcing the user identity different from letting the system assign the user identy different?<BR><BR>Thanks<BR>Terry
