More importantly, is it possible to mount a network share, using cygwin, so that it becomes visible/available in explorer?

It'll ask you for credentials, if that would be necessary.
Or you can enter credentials beforehand, assuming you're using the same for
one remote system.
net use \\host\IPC$ * /user:<username>
Good idea, but I need this for an autonomous process.
A service cannot open Windows Explorer.
And windows does not allow credentials in the UNC, afaik.
