I can see everything with 'net use' through ssh with password
authentication. I still need to "remap" the drive I've mapped it
to, if that's what I want to use. Perhaps if you're still having
problems and can't figure it out, it's time to start over and send
the list a clear set of steps that you take and the results you
see. Then perhaps I or others on the list can see your problem
and offer a solution.
