I'm trying to use the AT command to schedule a simple batch program which transfers files between two computers (non-trusted).  The batch program works great from the command prompt but does not work when I use the AT command.  No error is generated and I am not sure how to see what is happening.  I was getting Access is Denied at one point and nothing gets transferred over.  I'm eagerly looking for a solution to schedule the transfer.

Method one is to have NET USE connect the network drive of the other computer with /USER and password specified. This is a very unsafe method if someone unauthorized might be able view the batch file.

The other alternative is to specify a different account for the schedule service. Normally, it runs as the system account, and this account cannot access files on other computers in the network. You need to set an account which has access to the remote computer. This is done in control panel\services, by selecting the service and then choosing configure.

The suggestions were very good ones which I had tried previously but was not successful with.  I changed a few things, including making the net logon service start automatically (don't know if this mattered) and was able to successfully get the transfer going.  Thanks!
