. .
The NetUseAdd function establishes a connection between the local computer and a remote server. You can specify a local drive letter or a printer device to connect. If you do not specify a local drive letter or printer device, the function authenticates the client with the server for future connections.

You can also use the WNetAddConnection2 and WNetAddConnection3 functions to redirect a local device to a network resource. Connections added by NetUseAdd are not shown in the Explorer. You should use one of the WNetAddConnection methods to make the networkdrive visible in the explorer.
