You just need to set up a Windows network drive to the NAS share and use
that drive letter.
I do this to backup files from Windows 2003 to a NAS.
Batch file runs on XP.
NET USE q: /DELETE
NET USE q: \\nasdevice\files <passwd> /USER:<nasuser> /PERSISTENT:NO
rsync -rDPt --chmod=Du+rwx,Fu+rwx --delete --modify-window=3601
I even use MS shadow tools to copy open files on 2003.
