> If the client(s) offer OLE automation, then it would be a snap in C++/Delphi, Python, or even JScript and yes, VBScript (ick!).

Do you know how I can find out more information about OLE automation. I'm not quite sure of what you mean.

> You could try with a higher-level tool, like WinBatch, where can set the focus to the app and send it keys, etc.

Thnx Matt! Do you think it would work if I instead sent out, using the correct protocol, a message to the server? That way, when the server responds, it would (hopefully) respond to the original program (eg. MSN Messenger) and that program would open up a chat window and take it from there.

> On the second one, I'm not completely sure what you mean.
What I mean is this: You know how in Windows Explorer it's possible to map a network drive to appear as a local hard drive. So if I have comp A and comp B networked, I can share comp B's hard drive, and map it on comp A. That way, when I open up Windows Explorer on comp A, it would show the A drive, D drive, C drive and comp B's hard drive. The user can then click on that drive, and browse through the files, copying and deleting like they would on their own hard drive. Well, I want to allow the user to do just that, except with comp B being connected to a WAN(the Internet) and not to a LAN. I hope this clarifies my question. If not, let me know.
Thnx again Matt.
