okm the obvious bits are
  sl: tstringlist;

if you do not have access (requires auth) then I think it's
 WMNetAddConnection or  WMNetAddConnection2 or something like that...
you do not need to provide a drive letter for the mapping
(away from delphi atm, will check later, or someone else will fill you in)
the equivalent of doing
net use \\somepc\someshare password /user:someuser /persistent:no
from the cmd prompt

  ConnectDrive('', '\\Servername\C', True, False);

Are you using a Dialog to save or do you insert the path in your code?

Either way just use the '\\' at the beginning of the path (Take off any drive specifications like C:\ etc...)


('c:\Yourpath\yourfile.ext')  would like like this ('\\yourpath\yourfile.ext')

If you are using the Dialogs just browser the network to the desiredv location.
