RE: Using Null Session information from NAT.EXE

Thanks to everyone who got back to me. Unfortunately no-one seems to have hit upon the solution as yet.

On reviewing my post I realise (or more accurately - have had pointed out to me!) that I did infact forget to put a \\ in font of the IP address i.e NET USE * \\\c$ ... . Sorry this was a typo.

Most of the replies I received centred around

NET USE * \\\c$ password /user:domain_name\Administrator
NET USE * \\\c$ password /user:computer_name\Administrator

Unfortunately these were unsuccesful as well.

And the computer_name is in the lmhosts file.

I did leave out some information on my original post that is probably very relevant for which I do apologise if I have wasted anyone's time due to the fact that is is now a blindingly obvious solution.

I'm trying to connect from an NT4 workstation, with non-admin privileges, to a Windows 2000 box if this makes a difference.

Bikar Dude suggested getting hold of a modified smbclient to use instead of NET - anybody have any suggestions as to where I may find one?

The big question is, for me anyway, since NAT.EXE has succesfully found the Admin password it is obviously managing to connect to the other box somehow and get authenticated. How is it that NAT can and I can't? Is this due to NAT using its own modified SMBCLIENT and if so where can I get a copy of the SMBCLIENT only?

Thanks again to all who replied.
