Mapping a Remote Network Drive

My OS/2 computer is connected to a LAN, which is connected
to the main campus server by a T1 line. I need to connect
to a drive on the main server. Others on my LAN can do so
in Windows 95 by the following process:

Push START
Go to Programs
Click on Windows Explorer
Click on Tools
Click on Map Network Drive
Select a Drive Letter
Type in "\\Server\Resource"
Click on Go

I cannot find a way to do this in OS/2. Can you give me
directions on how to Map this remote drive. The main campus
server is not in my servers folder under Novell, if that
matters.

I know there's a Netware util to to this (maybe SYSCON - you can try typing that in an OSD/2 command window). I always used the os/2 command line to map drives: MAP n: \\server\resource (it's been a while since I've used Netware so excuse me if the syntax is a bit off).

The original question stated "The main campus server is not in my servers folder under Novell, if that matters.". That suggests to me that he's running the OS/2 Netware requester.

The original answer did not work. OS/2 stated that it was unable
to find the server.

I am running the Netware requester for the LAN, but the server
in question is NOT available from Netware, either on my OS/2
computer or my colleagues WIN-95 computers.

What is the name of the server in qestion (eg. \\aserver)? What NOS is the server running (Novell, OS/2 LAN Server, MS Lan Manager, MS Win NT, etc)? If the server is not a Novell server, do you have the appropriate client installed to access it? For all the other servers in the list above, you can use OS/2 Lan Requester or Peer requester. What ver of OS/2 are you running? Warp 3? Warp 3 Connect? Warp 4? What protocol does the server in question use? Do you have that protocol installed on your workstation? Is it configured correctly?

I need more input to analyze your problem.
