    Does anyone know how, once connected to a network share through supplying a username and password (through explorer without the use of a mapped network drive), you can disconnect from it and reconnect using a different username/password to gain different access priviledges?

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    Just close the window with the remote resource, you can view if you still connected typing in a command prompt "net use", if didn't work you can type "net use \\remotepc /d" and check again

    Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou! lol
    I've been searching the net for days trying to find out how to do that.

    Btw, the connection is not closed by simply closing the folder.
    Fortunately as soon as you type "net use \\remotepc /d" the connection is removed and the password prompt reappears when you try to access the remote folder/drive.

    Thanks again,
    Patrick
