I meant the folder in which I have to upload the image is shared via LAB on a linux machine. My PC runs WinXP. This folder is located at 192.168.0.24\snapshot. This folder is password protected. So How can I connect to this folder providing Username and password, upload the image ther and close the connection. Then repeat the same process at random time interval.. my gmail id is firstname.lastname@example.org.. Can we chat over ther if u still have any doubts abt my requirements ??? I truly appreciate ur help..
