# “net use /delete” question

I want to delete a network connection. When I type net use I get this:

 Microsoft Windows XP [version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\toto>net use

État         Local     Distant                   Réseau

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OK           M:        \\192.168.5.138\share  Réseau Microsoft Windows
OK           R:        \\192.168.2.18\tools   Réseau Microsoft Windows
OK                     \\192.168.2.43\data   Réseau Microsoft Windows
La commande s'est terminée correctement.


The syntax for deleting a network map is net use /delete X: if I want to delete one specific connection, or net use /delete ** if I want to delete all connections.

How can I delete the \\192.168.2.43\data connection which, as you can see, is not linked to any logical letter?

-

net use \\192.168.2.43\data /delete

perfect! I tried *net use /delete \192.168.2.43 and it didn't work..... –  Martin Delille Apr 15 '10 at 12:05
Ahh, got ya. Yeah, you need to make sure that the actual resource is specified. You can, obviously, put the /delete pretty much anywhere after net use. –  MDMarra Apr 15 '10 at 15:04
You can also add /Y to prevent confirmation from blocking. –  Nick Westgate Feb 1 '13 at 1:52
