    I am trying to connect to a 2003 server and I can not. I have used net use
    for years and I can not get it to work from a console on vista biz or
    ultimate to a server or any PC for that matter. I get
    System error 52 has occurred.

    The network path was not found.

    net use * \\computername\share password /user:administrator
    net use * \\computername\share password /user:computername\administrator

    I can ping by name
    I turned on RPC in services
