Logon to remote workstation (workgroup) for file access

If my program attempts to access a file on another computer in a
workgroup (not a domain) then my user must already be connected to
that computer. If not the file access fails (after waiting an
uncomfortably long time).

How can I programatically determine if they have logged on to a
machine and if not pop up the logon dialog?

At the moment the user must first open Windows Explorer and go to the
computer in question. This forces a logon which Windows then remembers.

Thanks,
James
