Have you tried the commands directly in a cmd shell?

To access D$ requires administrator privilege, make sure you have the rights.

Why map a network resource to T: then never use it only to delete it?

So now you know where the problem lies, solve it. There is nothing any one here can give as an answer as it is related to access rights to a network resource.

Your URL uses an IP address that is not a local network address, can you see that IP address from your network; ping it and see if you get a response. Also if it is a remote remote server there will definitely be restrictions on exposing admin shares (D$) directly over the internet normally you would use a VPN for security to access shares remotely.

That address is an internet routable address, if it is a server on your local network it would normally have a local address as well that you can use locally.

Non-routable or local IP addresses are in the ranges to to to
