System error 67 says the network name cannot be found.

Try mapping by IP address and if that works, it is a DNS resolution issue. You can try using your local HOSTS file to provide the correct association.

I do this all the time and put the associations in my HOSTS file. That should fix it for you. The error comes from inability to resolve the remote name.

I do not have your operating system but it may not matter.

Open Notepad as an Administrator.

File, Open, C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

A file opens. Add the following entry after the comments:

192.168.78.101 Servername

where 192.168.78.101 is the address of the server and Servername is the name of the server that has the folder.

Save the file (you need to have authority which is why the first line here).

Did you restart?  

The entry is correct. If I make that kind of entry, I can:

NET USE V: \\server\F$ /user:DOMAIN\name password

You should be able to:

NET USE V: \\SRV1\folder /user:DOMAIN\name password

I do this with multiple clients and server types and my own machine has ranged through XP, Vista, Seven and Eight and it always works.

Is your operating system PRO and not HOME?

Check the HOSTS file to make sure your entry stuck. You do have to have admin authority to make it stick.

Finally check your firewall. A firewall can sometime block NAME but not necessarily IP.  See if that helps.
