percentage sign in a drive mapping ?

Good day all,

I'm hoping someone can help me understand what the percentage sign is and does in mapping a drive to a server ? I provided the example for you.

(ie \\server1\share%simon)

I always thought the % sign preceeded the password for the user you are using? Am I wrong?

Simon, is this related to Unix in any way? I don't understand your situation... It may be dependent on the SMB/CIFS vendor you're using.
