Windows 7: Mapping a network drive

Mapping a network drive

Ok. I mapped my college snap server on windows 7 professional. I just upgraded to windows 7 ultimate, so I know what I need to change. I went into local security policy, and changed Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level to Send LM & NTLM Responses. I go to map it, and I get the servername and share right, and I type in the login details CONC\F101 for username, and nothing for password. However, it refuses to let me login. I've tried several fixes from google, including adding a key in my regedit and nothing works. Any ideas?

I'm not sure which server your trying to get into here but maybe these adjustments will help.
Set Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption

I did that already. It was one of the other fixes that I could find which did not work.

Everything I read mentions authentication settings which you already tried.

Windows 7 Connection Issue with older Snap Server NAS Appliance

I recently encountered an issue with Windows 7 Professional connecting to an older Snap Server. After some research, I found that this problem originated in Vista, and is resolved in Windows 7 by the same method.
To use a login script to map a network drive to an older Snap Server in Vista or 7 Professional, you first have to create a local user account on the Snap Server, even if it is joined to the domain.
Then, you have to make the following changes on the Windows client.
. Go to Administrative Tools
. Double Click Local Security Policy
. On the left pane, click to expand Local Policies
. On the left pane, click on Security Options
. Now, on the right pane, near the bottom, click on Network Security LAN Manager Authentication Level
. On the drop down, change the default setting (NTLMv2 only) to Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session if negotiated
Then, just add the username and password into the network mapping command in the login script.
Example;
Net use X: \snapservernameshare password /USER:snaperservernameusername

Sorry, I should have specified. The snap server is the student server that my college uses. All the campus computers are mapped to it and the faculty put on files the students need for their classes. It's an open server that anyone on the campus ip can access. Also, I've tried a lot of fixes, so I couldn't remember them all to post. I also tried using that particular setting, Chev.
