Network drive mapping

Hi,
How do you map a network drive and don't have to provide
password whenever the server reboots of logged off. I have
provide the username & password at the initial mapping but
after logging off or rebooting, the network drive mapping
windows opens and prompts for a password.

If this is a workgroup environment, make sure that you have an account on the remote machine that matches the account you are
logging in with on your machine. The password must match also. If these machines are in a domain, then authentication will be
handled by the domain and will be completely transparent to the user.

Thank you,

1. The server requesting sharing is a member server of a
domain which has non-transitive trust with the domain of
the source folder. The username& password used to map has
right on the source domain. Will it help if I add this
server which request the share to the AD of the source
server's domain so that any request would be
authenticated. The permission for the shared folder is "
everyone". Once the "target" server is added into the AD
of source domain, with the credentials required,
subsequent request should be auto authenticated. Is that
right??
