Cannot map a network drive on my Windows 7 to another domain?

Hello,

I have Windows 7 Professional and I cannot map a network drive to a share on another domain. I can map to this share from a Vista machine, but not a Windows 7 machine. I'm using the same settings so i know all is correct and seems to be a Windows 7 issue. I appreciate anyones help and support.

Did you always try mapping it by the Ip

\\X.X.X.X

Could be possible the name is not resolving.

Try to access by complete DNS name: machine.domain you asked by credentials. Put complete username: username@domain.
