I'm having situation like this:

I have a machine, whitch uses MS-DOS to get data how to build things and so on. I Have installed TCP/IP client, drivers for network card and other stuff required to use TCP. My goal that that MS-DOS machine can reach and get data from Server 2003 R2 over TCP/IP

My problem:

When I try to map a disk form 2003 R2 server is says access denied and I can't find any configurations for this. Maybe you know how to give access for it?

I can ping Server 2003 R2 and reach

By the way, I am using ACTIVE DIRECTORY in Server 2003 R2, and I'm trying to get data from server by one user form A D – gedO May 21 '12 at 11:33
How are you currently mapping the drive? Are you including a domain username and password in the command? – Jesse Paxson May 21 '12 at 12:15
I'm using NET USE F: \\ADDRES\To\FOLDER – gedO May 21 '12 at 13:03

Maybe try using net use and include the credentials. Something like this.

Net use F: \\Address\To\Folder Password /user:Domain\Username

No luck, says /user:... option unknown – gedO May 22 '12 at 8:29
If you type "net use /?" What does it display? Any reference to /user:? Also, try mapping to the share only and not to a folder inside the share... See if you get the same results. – Jesse Paxson May 22 '12 at 15:56
I created a DOS 6.22 VM to test with and it appears as though NET.EXE in 6.22 does not support the /user option... Looking for an alternative though. – Jesse Paxson May 22 '12 at 20:10
Yes, it dosn't understand /user in DOS 6.22 – gedO May 24 '12 at 5:53
