I am wondering if it is possible to get to a computer on a network you're on, through command prompt, not telnet. I've got to my Desktop through command prompt but "My Network Places" dosen't show up there... help!

Thanks in advance...

You'll need to map a network drive to the share you want to access. The mapping will default to the next available drive letter. Then in the command prompt you can just switch to the new mapped drive letter. Then you should be able to navigate the share with your normal DOS commands.

Need more info about your OS and whether the computer you want to connect to is internal to your LAN or external to be anymore specific.

Should I stick with the Default Drive Letter (E:\) or change it to one I already have on my computer, for instance D:\ ?

no don't assign a network drive letter to a drive already on your system, I'm not quite sure what would happen if anything but it probably wouldn't be good. Any letter will do except for a letter already in use on your system. Enjoy :D

Correct...I don't think it will let you map a drive to a letter already in use anyway.

correct. it will only allow you to map to outgoing network connections.
The only way you could do it, is if you shared your local drives and then
browsed to your own pc through the network to map it. which...would
be kinda silly, don't ya think? ;)
