Access Windows \\[servername] file servers?


In Windows XP, I can access computers on my college campus by opening Run and typing \\[servername]. I have the hostname and the IP of these servers. How do I access these shares? I run smb:/ and only computers on the local network (on my floor of the dorm) are visible. Running smb:/[IP of server] doesn't lead anywhere either.

I am using SUSE 9.1. Thank you in advance for any help!

Presumably, you have good smbclient support, if you can see some computers. You could try using smbclient from the command line to see if it's a problem in the GUI.
Code:
smbclient -L <ip>

Thank you very much! I can actually connect to the server now. However... It logs me out immediately to the Konsole. I can't browse folders, transfer files, nothing. Can you help with the next step or point me in the right direction. Again, thank you for addressing my question.

That was just a check to make sure no firewalls were in the way or anything like that. You can also check out the program "LinNeighborhood" for a nice GUI way of browsing the network.
