Unable to map a network drive

  1. I am trying to map a network drive with an address like this:

    It's basically a folder on the school network, I can access this folder and view its contents perfectly fine through an internet browser, but when I try to map a network drive to it, it doesn't work, I keep getting errors like this:

    Why do I keep getting this message? And why am I able to access that folder through a browser but not through windows? I am using Windows 7 btw.

    Any help much appreciated.

    possible fix (found from a google seach):

    Service 'Routing and Remote Access' is required for this.
    Go to control panel - Admin tools - services.
    Scroll down to 'Routing and Remote Access'.
    Go to properties and set start-up to automatic and start the service

    I think the net use commands will still work under Win 7. You might give it a try. See here

    Then try a command string similar to
    net use x: "" /User:UserName Password
