This may be an important point that I forget to mention ??

When I access the remote files, I ALWAYS use UNC
"e.g., \\remote_host\share\..."
instead of having the remote drive mapped.

I do that because this way I don't need to worry
about re-map the drive if the connection goes away.
I wonder if there is a feature that allow Windows
to automatically re-map the drive when a broker drive
is accessed??

Thanks in adance.
