I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
