ssh shell's mount table differs from normal shell's

Matt,

I'll let you look this one up if you're interested in the previous 
discussions and details on this subject.  

This is the same old "problem" with ssh that everyone has if they don't 
authenticate with Windows (and enter their password).  If you don't use 
password authentication with ssh, Windows doesn't know you as the user you 
say you are so it won't show you shares for that user.

Don't forget about the email archives when you have a question.  I little 
time looking there can answer allot of questions.

Larry
