Demonstrates usage of NetShare APIs.

Introduction

The ShareIT is a simple utility which transfers the sharing rights from one machine to another. Specially useful to system administrators who want to restore sharing rights from one machine (backup may be) to another machine (main server may be). The utility demonstrates NetShare APIs. ShareIT enumerates the source machine sharing rights using the NetShareEnum() API. The security descriptors thus obtained are applied to the target machine's directories using the NetShareAdd() and NetShareSetInfo() APIs. Cleanup is done using NetApiBufferFree() function.

The main logic is shown below:

do 
{
    // Enumerate the shared resources
    res = NetShareEnum ( lpszMachine1, 502, 
            (LPBYTE *) &BufPtr, -1, &er, &tr, &resume);
    if(res == ERROR_SUCCESS || res == ERROR_MORE_DATA)
    {
        // save the share info structure
        p = BufPtr;
        
        for(i=1; i <= er; i++)
        {
            // Check if this is a valid security descriptor. Some are not!
            if( IsValidSecurityDescriptor(p->shi502_security_descriptor) != 0 )
            {
                if(iShow == SHOWNETNAME)
                    WideCharToMultiByte(CP_ACP, 0, 
                      (LPWSTR)p->shi502_netname, MAX_PATH, 
                      szBuffer, MAX_PATH, NULL, NULL);
                else
                    WideCharToMultiByte(CP_ACP, 0, 
                      (LPWSTR)p->shi502_path, MAX_PATH, 
                      szBuffer, MAX_PATH, NULL, NULL);
                
                
                // Print some dots !!!
                  printf("%s ", szBuffer);

                // Should we ask the user ???
                if(bPrompt == TRUE)
                {
                    char ch = getch();
                    if(ch == 'n' || ch == 'N')
                    {
                        for(int k=0; 
                          k < abs(60 - strlen(szBuffer)) && k<60; k++)
                            printf(".");

                        printf(" SKIPPED\n");
                        p++;
                        continue;
                    }
                }

                for(int k=0; k < abs(60 - strlen(szBuffer)) && k<60; k++)
                    printf(".");

This number is used to define information level.
eg. SHARE_INFO_502 is a structure that contains info about shared resource. 501 has only three var whereas 502 has 10.
 
Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
