    I have used NTLM to connect sharepoint

    What is sharepoint and how did you connect? Does it support listing files?

      SharePoint is a Microsoft enterprise solution for providing collaborative space and document/artifact workflows. The fact that you've already connected via NTLM is a good first step. Since everything in SharePoint is a list, please see the links I posted in Access sharepoint calendar using LWP (which, despite the title, I provided links that do NOT use LWP.

        use WWW::Mechanize; use LWP::UserAgent; use LWP::Authen::Ntlm; use Storable; use DBI; use FileMoveDMS2DStage_Parm; use LWP::Debug qw(+); my $URL_Parm_DMS=""; &Parm_file::InitEnv();#parameter file for credentials# $mech = WWW::Mechanize->new(autocheck=>1,keep_alive=>1); $mech->agent_alias( 'Windows IE 6' ); $mech->credentials("",'',$ENV{'UserId_Parm_DMS'}, $E +NV{'Password_Parm_DMS'}); $mech->get($URL_Parm_DMS); my $html = $mech->content; @names = qw(file1); # COUNTS EACH ELEMENT OF THE ARRAY $n = 0; $mech->get($urlFile); $mech->save_content($filename);
        I have tried with this code to connect. But if i get the file name from share point my work is very easy. But some how i am not able to get idea to know the file name. I would really appreciate he you guys could help me on this.
