Good news & bad news: With the help of "Richard Nelson", I was able
to generate a batch file, that will prompt for an username and
password in Windows XP:
The following batch file, disconnects J: (incase a user forgot to
logoff), then requests the username.
The "*" after the password will prompt for the password. I was
unable to get "net" to prompt for a password correctly.
set/p Username=Enter your Username:
rem disconnects "J:" incase a user forgot to logoff
net use J: /delete /y
rem the net use with a "*" password will prompt for a password
net use J: \\liuxserver\files /USER:%Username% * /persistent:no
rem the last pause will allow us to see any error messages incase of errors
Can someone try my batch file on Vista?
Now the bad news: My batch file does not work under
Windows98se. The net use command does not allow a username. The
whole idea is to not have to logon to a windows98 machine.
Can someone come up with a direction or a simple solution that would
work on Windows98???
Here is [files] section that I added to smb.conf. Don't forget to
add username/passwd to smbpasswd.
comment = Work area files
path = /students/%U
read only = No
