Default Help saving a file.

I have some code in VB.net that creates and saves a file to a generic local directory. I need to move the location of where I am saving the file onto a network. The new location will have a username and password required. How do I automatically enter the username and password in my program?

I'm not certain about this, but I think the answer is that you cannot.

If you think about it, that would be a bit of a security hole.

I believe that what the right approach is, is to have yourself added to the Access Control List with the necessary permissions to save the file.
