Map Network Drive

Hi,
Anyone how I could get a mapped network drive to automatically log me in?
Would a batch script work?
thanks

Re: Map Network Drive

Wouldn't you have to login first to get access to network drives?

Re: Map Network Drive

a batch file would do it use
net use P: \\pcname or ip\c$ password /user:admin
All the passwords/username are for the pc you are mapping to.
C$ gives you all drive c or use the share name instead of c$
save as map.cmd and run from desktop or put into startup
So it will end up like this

net use P: \\81.149.162.144\sage mypass /user:fred

Re: Map Network Drive

Ok works a charm cheers.
Now, is there a way i can tell it to wipe all these network drives before it tries to connect?
You see when i start up, they appear in Explorer, but they appear as "Disconnected Network Drive".  And when I run my nifty lil batch script to reconnect i am being told that the resource already exists.
Reconnecting at logon simply doesnt work for at least one of the said network drives.  This way i can be sure wot is going on without havin to second guess what windows is trying to do.
thanks again.

Be aware that you can open a cmd screen and type in
'net help use' to see all available command options.
