cost matrix

Hi there,

I have a network dataset which represents roads and a shapefile with cities ....what I wanna do is to generate a cost matrix that contains the distance between two connected cities in the network. For this case the OD_matrix_solver is not desired because it calculates shortest distances between cities.... all I want is the "link_length" between cities..... I've been looking some scripts but most of them just compute euclidean distances between connected points..the question is how I can do the same but using the real shape.

I imagine that analogously to OD_matrix_solver...first I'd have to snap locations to my road network and next to generate the matrix.

Can anyone give me a little help here???...thanks
