No, or you must exec the command:

CMD C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\NET USE S: \\othersystem\sharedfolder

or such.

Yes, robert_a_jenkin, this is not fair.
At least you could give CEHJ half of the points!
Please reopen the question and do right.

Don't worry this time. I made an error - of course cleaned up by sciuriware - it's of course net use, not net share

Thanks for your support Joop
