Re: Windows Share Folder Problem

Hi Andy,

Thanks a lot for your help.

I have successfully accessed the sharable PC using command "cd
But to access the shared folder it is saying permission denied.
Actually, that shared folder  folder have user id and password.

How Can I give user id and password using cd command to access that
window sharable folder ?

Thanks & Regards,
Neeraj Sahu
