im my experiance the format of net use has not been
     NET USE Z: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\c$ /user:administrator password
but has worked as
    net use z:\ xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\c$ password /u:domain\user
which connects automatically or
    net use z:\ xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\c$ * /u:domain\user
which prompts you for a masked password

also you may want to terminate current connections with somehting like

net use \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx /delete

before running your connection commands, since you will be connected with
anonymous creditials from running nat

-mdb

Running NAT.EXE on a machine my local network gives me the following results

Now from here I thought it would just be a case of

NET USE Z: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\c$ /user:administrator password

to map the C$ to a local z:

However every time I try that it gives me a

System error 1326 has occurred.
Logon Failure: unknown user name or bad password.

Now I have gone to the machine and know that the user:pass combo is correct.

So, what am I doing wrong? I've searched the archives to no avail and I
notice on Google groups that a lot of people have asked the same question
but not received an answer. So I am turning to you guys ;)
