Should be '\\server\resource' when called from within Windows.

Actually, in this case, he needs to go the other way: one set of back-slashes is eaten when the bash -c command is parsed above, and another set of backslashes is eaten when bash actually executes the command, so try:

bash --login -i -c "net use \\\\\\\\view\\\\MCDT1_ST72521"
