    Accepted Solution

    Not that I am aware off.

    It would be a security breach.

    Using Net share or Net use will always require a user/ pwd on the remote host UNLESS you are member of the Admins group on the Domain/ Machine.

    In order to map these shares, the user must have at least Read/Write access.

    You can't do that.
    First, net share only works locally.
    Second, you need admin or at least power user privs to create shares.
