We have approximatly 60 servers on our WAN and we've yet to come up with a better solution to quickly transferring files from our office to any of these sites than using FTP or using the 'shared drive' feature of Terminal Services (remote desktop).

We can access these sites using UNC path names but need to use a server - unique username / password for each. What I want to know is if there is a way in windows using shortcuts / network drives or somthing or if there is a free tool to once - off enter in the shares on each site and have it remember the password, preferably in some sort of file, so it can be easily transferred to different computers (we have a few Techs who would be interested). I know network drives can be mapped however mapping 200+ drives seems unpractical, and i'm sure there is an easier way!
