You are correct, and I have tried it both ways. I have also tried using the
IP addess, as in

net use x: \\\work-clear /user:\g8team

I get the password promt, then a long pause, then the error 67 network name
could not be found.

I am thinking that the Vista client has been locked down so that it can
only connect to domain members. Is that even possible? Is there a command I
can use to list the GPOs in effect? Moot point, because the users will not
be able to change those.

Thanks again,
