Read File Over Local Network (Not HTTP)


I have a file shared on my local network @ “\\Shared_folder\test1.dat”. Is there a way to read this file using .NETMF?
Thanks, Carl


You can but you need to implement the protocol used for file sharing. It must be based on TCP sockets


\192.168.blah\blah\file implies an SMB protocol connection. Might be doable but as Gus says, you’d have to write the protocol handler. On a small device you might have trouble, but good luck if you give it a go
