Connecting to a share drive using Workgroup over domain

I am struggling with mapping a network drive between a file server and a work station. The following link looks good.

I was told the user names must match on the server and the workstation.

In the above article they use the following commands written into a batch file that is added to the startup menu.

net use l: \\tfcoop\users\Chris’s Documents” /USER:server_account_name the_password

exit

I will let you know how it goes.

Solved:
I made the user name and password the same on the file server and the workstation. On the workstation I used the credential manager and added a new location. For the user name I used “file_server_name\user_name”.
