widnows cannot access share ...!

Guys I need your help ....

when I create a share on network, and try to access I got "Network cannot Access \\path" without prompting me to enter username and password ?
How would I force it to impersonate to another user name and password, whether command line/ shortcut / .. etc?

current case:
Share on Server 2003 on Domain, share permission: to local user ONLY, security Auth: same local user with default groups (Domain Admin, Backup group ... , but no domain users)

Client on external workgroup (remote segment), win7/XP

do issue a
net use

This will show you the available connections to the server.
Then you'll have to close this connections via
net use \\servername\share /delete
as you mentioned.

Often there is a connection to \\servername\ipc$...

thank you Ove,

when I tried it, I got "system error 53 has occurred the network path was not found" !
knowing that, the server is available, and the share is seen, but not accessible!

any ideas?

You can ping the server by name and IP?

Can you connect with IP instead of name (eg:     \\192.168.x.x\sharename .....)

same case using IP !
and Yes, I can ping the server, I can access other shares on same server, but not this one!

If you can access other shares on that server then I would try to remove the problem share and recreate it and see what happens.

also when you mentioned LOCAL USER for the share permission.

If the server is named:  MyServer

when you enter the username, are you using:   MyServer\localuseraccount      ?

I recreated the folder, and still the same results.

I am trying this commaned:
net use * \\server\share password /user:SERVERNAME\USER  
here SERVERNAME = DOMAIN since local.

using the command line, I toggle between two cases:
system error 53 path not found , or system error 1219 ... connect using more than one account!

in this case, I need to clear connection to share using same command:
net use \\servername\share /delete

...............
from few forums, I found many suggesting that windows update and/or firewall could be the reason, so fro testing purposes, I disabled the existing firewalls on both client/server ... and I did updated windows today, but still have the error.

please advise guys!

I cleared all sessions to that share use the command
net use \\servername\share /delete ,
and then tried again from differnet locations/machines and everything is going fine now.

it looks like an un-properly closed sesssion of the same local user was the reason !! but
it works now, and thank you guys for the support ...

- cmd --> run as administrator
- query the current sessions by net use
- clear sessions by --> net use \\servername\share /DELETE
- open a clean sesssion to shared by -->
                        net use * \\servername\share password /USER:DOMAIN\user
or (local user) net use * \\servername\share password /USER:SERVERNAME/user
- insure sucessful result and no errors
- DONE you can access it anywhere by code/explorer ... etc

GOOD LUCK
