How to connect to a network share while supplying alternate credientials?

Our Techs have access to a network share, but the end users do not.  When the tech sits down at a user's computer they currently log off and on as themselves to access the share.  

How can they supply their own credientials for the share while another user is logged on?

" If the share is already mapped using credentials" should read: "If a share is already mapped using the credentials of the locally logged on user, and you want to use alternate credentials"

From a command prompt:

net use driveletter: \\computername\share /user:domainname\username should do the trick for you.  If the share is already mapped using credentials, replace the computername with its IP address.

That should do the trick for you.

If the share is already mapped, try to do a "net use" and see the mapping, then do a "net use X (driveletter) /delete.
then you will be able to remap it using the creds you need.
