We are trying to map a couple of drives by IPs and when we enter in \\IP address, we are getting errors that the network path cannot be found but we can ping it by IP or name and we can map through server name, share name.  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

Just to clarify, would I be correct in understanding that you are able to do this...
map: \\servername\share

-and NOT this-
map: \\\share
