Hi PraveenP,

From the command line, try something like :

NET USE X: \\192.168.2.7\sharename  
    password /USER:domain\username

The two lines above really one.

If the remote computer is not in a domain or it uses simple password protection on sharing, omit 'domain\'.

Regards,
Mike

You can do it from GUI also...
browse into "My Network Places" find the computer you want to connect to...enter user/pass  
Stand on the share and right click "Map Network folder"
Dont forget to enter your details in the "Connect AS" link.

Enabling NETBios traffic to pass through a router can potentially be very dangerous if you're talking about a connection over the internet. It can also be very costly if you're taliking about a dial-on-demand connection from one site to another as it's prone to keeping connections alive. I've known companies to clock up astronomical ISDN bills because of this.
What type of connection is there between the two machines?
