Session request failed (Called name not present)


I have the following shell script to map a drive to a windows machine:

Code:
echo Enter password:
stty -echo
read passwd
stty echo
mount -t smbfs -ousername=myusername,password=$passwd //192.168.2.5/sharename /mnt/mountname
It works fine and the share mounts, but for some reason I get this error:
4615: session request to 192.168.2.5 failed (Called name not present)
4615: session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)

Anyone have any clues?

I suddenly got the same problem. Last weekend, I 'down'graded from Slackware Current to 9.1 (with a clean format), but kept my working configuration files. But now, smbmounting returns errors. For instance:

smbmount //ctwdata1.ctw.utwente.nl/usersbw /mnt/usersbw -o username=name,password=pass

Returns:

2133: session request to CTWDATA1.CTW.UT failed (Called name not present)

Strangely, the remote folders are correctly mounted by a smbmount process with pid 2134 and fully accessible! And note the incomplete URL as returned in the error message...

Can anybody explain this?
