Can't Access Share

I created a new share. From my network I can’t seem to access that share. I can access the public share fine and map it to a network drive.  When I try to access the new share it asks me for a user name and password. I enter that. I get an error that says…Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. I am using XP.



That’s a limitation of Windows.   You cannot log into the same NAS using two different sets of credentials.

There’s two ways around this.


DELETE The first connection using the command “net use * /delete” from a CMD window.

Then Connect to the PRIVATE share FIRST, *then* the PUBLIC Share.

  1.  Map the Public share as a drive letter using the MBL’s NAME.

      Map the PRIVATE share as a different drive letter using the MBL’s IP ADDRESS.
