Ping is a tool to test for connectivity, it does nothing else.

To connect to another computer and look at files you would need to use Remote Desktop Connection (RDC)

You can find RDC at:

Start >> Programs >> Accessories >> Communications >> RDC

to access files on a server via DOS you would need to load the ms client 3.0 on your system. You would need the appropriate config.sys and autoexec.bat commands to load the network drivers.

You would need to know how to use the net use command to establish drive mappings to the folders you wanted access to.

It is my understanding this will not work with servers in Active Directory.

Google dos networking for more info.

Are you actually asking about MS-DOS (an operating system) or the COMMAND PROMPT (not an operating system, but a command line environment withing an operating system such as WinXP or Vista)?
