Creating Directory on remote NT box

hi guys,

I would like to create a directory on another nt
I call net use \\server\ipc$ /user password
which is successful
then i would like to create
a directory say
and move a file there
when i call start \\server\C$ it prompts
for login and password, but so far i got
access denied.
is this possible to manage???
(please note, I have not explicitely shared
a directory there )

Have you got administrator permissions?
If this is the case, try this simpliest way:
net use z: \\server\c$ password /user:username
then go to z: and create your directory,
later move the file there.

Only administrators have access to resources with a $ behind.
If you're not an administrator, look for another shared name for C: on that server.

Good luck :)
You will need to have Admin access on the NT box to use the Admin share. The permissions on the disk (C) will need to be changed by the NT admin to allow you access.

The default access premissions (which should be instantly changed) allow everyone read write. Hopefully the admin has changed them.

You should be able to access the same if the following conditions are met
1. Admin Users
3. OR user given privelge to access the  same
2. Remote PC rights are not changed
