Well, AFAIK the used WNetAddConnection2()-function is not deprecated.

If I understand you correctly you want to know if this program works
against a NT (server), a Win2k (server) or a XP (server)?
Or, if you want me to run this program in Win2k or XP, that'll take some
time - as it's in security architecture written for a smartcard solution
for NT. I'd have to write a new program for these architectures.
Please clarify on this point.

Are you interested in sniffer dumps or samba-logs or similar?
BTW, using "username map" didn't help - maybe I've done something wrong.

Thanks for your effort!
