Net Use Command Prompt

net use P: \\PORTAGE\B /USER:John Brown 143r56

I can't get this command to work, can anyone help?

I have the computer PORTAGE in my home network.
I have a Drive Mapping Letter L to a folder named B on PORTAGE
The user name on PORTAGE is John Brown and 143r56 is the password.

If I click on L:\portage\b in Windows Explorer I enter John Brown and password and connect without problem. But I have to do it every time I boot. I'd like to get it to work in a .BAT file I run at startup.

Thank you, Jim
