Question Called name not present?


Okay,I added this line to my /etc/fstab.......
//192.168.0.179/c /mnt/win smbfs defaults,fmask=777,dmask=777,username=X,password=X 1 2
I created /mnt/win, and when I type "mount /mnt/win" I get the following output.


947: session request to 192.168.0.179 failed (Called name not present)
947: session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)
947: session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)
SMB connection failed

what did I do wrong?
Also, what do the 1 and 2 do I couldn't find it in the MAN and most of the others are set to 0.
P.s. I can ping just fine between the xbox and pc. and I do normally have my username and password in.

Thanks.

allright I've made a little progerss. I found this post on google and I tried some of the stuff from it. http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...net%26rnum%3D1
I used my windows computer name instead of the ip in fstab and it kinda worked. It gave me this output when I typed mount /mnt/win
tdb((null)): tdb_open_ex: could not open file /var/run/samba/unexpected.tdb: No such file or directory
tdb((null)): tdb_open_ex: could not open file /var/run/samba/unexpected.tdb: No such file or directory
tdb((null)): tdb_open_ex: could not open file /var/run/samba/unexpected.tdb: No such file or directory
Password:

And from there, I can put in the password and the networked computer the is mounted. Does anyone know how this can be made more streamlined? Cause when I leave this in my fstab I have to enter the password every time I boot.

Also could anyone explain to me why this happens from what that article describes? Cause I don't have much of a clue when it comes to all that net bios stuff. Thanks.

Man alive I'm stupid!!! the only reason the password wasn't going was because I accidentally pushed enter when editing the fstab line! What a relief. Thanks to everyone who even remotly considered helping lol

The man fixes his own problem, before anyone has had a chance to answer him, and he thinks he's stupid? Gee I wish I was that stupid :-)
