JSI Tip 0520 - How can I connect to the same resource using different credentials?

Normally, a single user would receive an error indicating that the supplied credentials conflict when attempting to connect to a resource with different credentials.

If you use the TCP/IP protocol, you can fake it out:

net use * \\ServerName\Share1 /U:UserName1
net use * \\IPAddress\Share1 /U:UserName2
