You can still do this, you just have to map a drive:

net use e: "\\remote1\c$\Program Files\dnetc"
dnetc -update
net use e: /d

Make that a batch file where "remote1" is a parameter, and use a second
batch file to step through each machine name, calling the first file.

|Subject: [RC5] Remote buffers from command line
|Sometime ago, in the pre-8000 clients, it was possible to make the 
|client use remote buffer files from the command line. This was with 
|the "-in" and "-out" switches. I used to use the win32 client to 
|update the buffer files of a dos client over the network, entering 
|the paths as UNC paths.
|However, with the latest 8005 client, this no longer works. The "-in" 
|and "-out" options have gone and have been replaced with "-inbase" 
|and "-outbase". Problem is, these options don't like UNC pathnames 
|and the client does nothing when it's run with them.
|Is there any other way to make a client use remote buffers from the 
|command line (so it can be scripted to do several machines)? I've had 
|to revert to the less satisfactory (and somewhat error-prone) method 
|of copying the buffers files locally, updating them, and copying them
