Hi Everyone, I am trying to connect to a different server through a cisco router.
I have entered the relevant info into the logon script, i am then prompted for a username and password.
I enter these details and it connects fine!
I want to know if the username and password info can be added automaticaly using the logon script so i connect straight away with no prompt!
I know the reason why its asking for the info because of switching domains/servers.
many thanks,
IMak

Thanks anupnellip, sorry for acting a bit daft but, can you give me more on that command

I have got the first bit okay, but, i am struggling with it from     /user:domain\user_name password
do i replace these with actual user name and domain name then  \username and password?
Thanks,
IMak

net use t: \\servername\shared_drive /user:domain\user_name password

/user:   --- use as it is
domain  --- your domain name
username  ---- the user name u use to connect
password   --- the password for the user .

e.g if your domain name is md1 , user name test  & password pass then you would use

net use t: \\servername\shared_drive /user:md1\test pass

hope this is clear
