Hi Andy,

Thanks a lot for your help.

I have successfully accessed the sharable PC using command "cd
//server_ip_address"
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 ?
