I've yet to get "net use" to work for me via cygwin.
net use Z: \\W.X.Y.Z\Share <password>
tries to prompt me with a question:
Z: has a remembered connection to \\W.X.Y.Z\Share. Do you want to
overwrite the remembered connection? (Y/N) [Y]:
No valid response was provided
I.e., it never gives me the opportunity to answer the question.
If I try changing the drive letter, I get error 67, the network name cannot
Note that "net use" by itself continues to show the "Unavailable" status
for the Z: drive with that share.
