I am trying to view files on
another machine using the DOS copy command  (eventually I will want
to use the DOS copy commands).  These machines are on a Local Area
Net.  The files reside on the machine known as GATEWAYLAPTOP and when
I run the NET VIEW command on machine "A" it identifies  machine "B"
as \\GATEWAYLAPTOP.  So my command is:

DIR \\GATEWAYLAPTOP\C:\

However I get an error that the file name or directory is
invalid.  Does anyone know how to do this?
