Hi All,

I need to develope a tool which will parse the log file data. The log file is placed at web server and it needs authentication to access the file, I do have the credentials with me but don't know how to implement the code that will use the credentials to access the log file.

Does anybody knows how to implement a C# code that reads the log file by providing the credentials to access the log file.

Any kind help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

A simple C# code to access the log file, the same way we read any other text file.

Try this article here at Codeproject: A small C# Class for impersonating a User[^]

Then you can execute code as another user:

using ( new Impersonator( "myUsername", "myDomainname", "myPassword" ) )
  var content = System.IO.File.ReadAllText("");
