What is Network Connect?

On large networks or on networks with different domains or workgroups it is quite problematic to find and connect a network share as a drive. A solution is to use shortcuts to the network locations or to remember the drive. These solutions have disadvantages over reconnecting the network share to a drive.

The Network Connect Tool in WinNc connects and disconnects predefined network shares very quickly and even allows you to connect or disconnect a group of shares. For each share, the following information is predefined:

  • Readable name, i.e. 'My network connection'
  • Network share, i.e. '\\Server\Share'
  • User Name
  • Password
  • Group name, i.e. 'Company network'
