net use (command not working)

Hi, when i try to use this command I get an access denied (error 5)message. I can map drives from my computer but im lookin to get this working from a batch script. Any help?
Check the order of how you entered all of the information. It should look something like this:

net use x: \\computer\folder password /user:username
Its nothing to do with the syntax, it should auto use the username and pass of the user logged in. I have tried this on other networks and it runs fine, just not on mine.

Its also nothing to do with the acl of that user, as they can map it from my computer perfectly. I am led to believe that its that they use different system services to map the drive.

I think the net use command uses netbios name resolution. And my wins server is running fine with every client registered. Anybody got a good idea of what is causing this?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
