    how to automate novel login process without interaction using saved account id passwo

    I am a sort-of novice in win32 api pgmming. I want to automate the file-copying process
    accross the novel network and to Unix using win32 api GUI programming. It involves
    automating the login processes using userid and password, tree, context, server(on the
    novel login panel), and copying file from a network drive to another drives.

    I use Bloodshed Dev-C++.

    My question is how to automate the novel login process without interaction using some saved account name password, tree, context, etc?

    Is this possible? If so, then where should I look? Could you give me some useful links to simiar examples? Thank you.

    um...don't know,
    on the most basic level you need to get a handle to it's window, then you can access or edit the information in it's textboxes, even as far as sending it signals like IB_OK etc. However, you need permission to access it's handle etc.
    PHP and XML

    I will give it a try. An example of such would help me much better.

    Thank you for the reply.
    If I could get some example, it would be much better. I will give it a try anyhow following your advice. Thank you again.

    Well,
    I can't give you exact code as i don't have much time right now, but i can get you started.
    I'm not sure of the command, but it launches another program from the current one. By using this function you can get a handle to novell (launch novell via this program).
    Um, as far as getting access to the textboxes (which I'm not sure will work or not) make your own dialog with textboxes etc. and reference them the same in the novell dialog as you would your own (as you can tell I'm pretty busy right now so i'm cutting corners, sorry).
    Beyond that, I'd try the novell website(s) and search for utilities of that sort.
    And even farther beyond that there are some utilities written by non-novell employees that may be able to do it at http://astalavista.box.sk
    but I'd use that place as a last resort, that's one website i definetly don't trust as far as i can throw the server.

    Thank you for the clue. I am searching Novell site and reading

    Thank you for the clue. I am searching Novell site and reading the NDK or SDK stuff to see if I can make it myself without lots of knowledge in Novell software.

    Thank you again.

    How do you use the Novel login client? Interactively or using some scripts to automate the login process.

    What I am trying to do is to automate the login with different account name pw, server, tree after I logged in with my id, in order to be able to copy files from one file server to another.

    Thank you.

    Never tried this, but if it were my task I wouldnt bother with C++ and I would try scripting with JScript....

    Ive read about the "ADSI NDS Provider".....could be just what you want....have a search on Google
