in reply to Map Drive in Windows (need to authenticate)

Or in the spirit of perl (TIMTOWTDI) here is another way to map a drive in perl.

use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Variant; my ($username, $password) = ('Administrator',''); my $network = Win32::OLE->new('WScript.Network') or die('Error creating network object'); $network->MapNetworkDrive('O:','\\\\\\dev', 0, $username, $password)

More information on this method can be found here.
