Develop a webdrive plugin for VB6.0 Webdrive is a program that allows you to map a remote directory as a network drive on your local harddisk. Connection mechanism is through an ftp connection. The functionalities would be similar to those found in the webdrive program located at www.webdrive.com. I.e. establish ftp connection to remote host, behave like a drive (x:\). The only difference is that I'm not looking for this to be a desktop program, just a behind the scenes component that I can use in different programs that uploads/downloads files from a remote ftp server (windows platform). Attention: this is NOT a request for a simple ftp program to get and put files. FTP is only used as a means to establish the connection and transfer the data. The real purpose of this request is to make the ftp server (directory, location) function as a drive (i.e. X:\) and be recognized as such by Windows Explorer. The setup parameters for the component would be (but not limited to): - server ip - port - login - passwd - remote dir - local drive letter - local cache dir - cache size (optional) Once the connection is made, the ftp server shows up as a local drive under a specified drive letter (after checking if the drive letter is available) and this drive (which is in reality the FTP server) acts and functions like a local drive. I know I might be redundant in the explanation but some confusion existed as to what this was supposed to be. I hope this clears it up.
