Win95 SUBST For Network


Hi

I am looking for a utility that can replace the Win95 SUBST command to map
any SUBDIR in a SHARE NT drive.
Win95 SUBST command is NOT working in a network drive and the output is:
"Cannot SUBST a network drive"

The tree structure on that SHARE is very complex and therefor it is inefficient to define a share to every subdir (more than 100 Shares )

The requested utility should be similar to the MAP command found in NetWare which is able to define a subdir as the root dir to a virtual drive ( SUBST is doing it fine in a local drive)

Enclose the command and the error message

C:\WIN95>subst x: j:\yagil\wordfile
when
j: is an NT SHARE network drive
and
x: is the virtual drive

and the output :
"Cannot SUBST a network drive"


thanks

I would recommend simply sharing the 'yagil' directory as a resource named 'yagil' and then mapping your drive letter as follows:

net use x: \\NT-SERVER-NAME\yagil

where NT-SERVER-NAME is the computer name of the NT server.
