cliffs?

you mapped a drive to a share on a red hat box

you disconnected the mapped drive.

you want to see if the red hat box still thinks you're connected?

gotta be somewhere in red hat.


on the xp box:

net use should display all mapped drives.

netstat will show all network connections

228 words, 937 characters (no spaces), 1164 characters (with spaces), 2 periods, 1 question mark. kudos to office politics for a brave attempt at translation.

Reboot the Linux box.

run net use from a command prompt. it will list all mapped drives.

you should be able to map another drive to the share anyways.

can you access the share by UNC path?

whats the exact error you get when trying to map the drive?

Can you map by searching for computer in my network places? That works a little differently than from the "map network drive" utility and sometimes it gets different results.

Is there a limit on the number of connections? I'm reaching here....

Open up My Computer. Go to Tools-->Disconnect Network Drive and see if it shows up there. If so, disconnect it that way.
