I am having a problem , My server is in Linux and I have to open the file (Excel File) on clicking a button , Since Linux Server has password , I am unable to open without authenticating on to server ,I am able to open file on Windows Server which is not having the password.
So I used JCIFS and now I can list down all the Files in the directory I can read them also ,but can't execute on my client machine. Tough I can use simple java to open any file on network on the machine which is not password protected or say has access . I can't allow server to have full access to client machine , I want client to use authentication and then execute file from server .

I am using this code to authenticate and read can you help me to execute it from Server after checking credential from Client.
