Hi Chilume,

When I used Unix a few years back, I never thought you could use the .net framework to run a Unix shell script.

I will have a sniff round google and let you know what I find but like I say from my past experience, .net is Windows and Unix is Unix.

Thanks John,

one of my friend has created a DLL in VB6.0 to connect to Unix box and the same dll has been used in an ASP page, which is working fine. but when I used same logic it's giving time out error.
I hope I can winsock to connect and to call shell script. Any idea on this?
kindly let me know.

Chilume.
