NTFS network share


I am trying to mount my fileserver accross my LAN. I have seen in another thread to use the mount command. Here is the jist of what I typed:

mount -t smbfs -o username=***,password=*** //server/videos /mnt/server

It returns 5721: connection to server failed

I can telnet, FTP, and ping the same box. Am I making a syntax error.

Also I do have the samba rpm installed.

Any help appreciated
thx

does it help if you use the ip address instead of "server"

Yes.

It also worked to add the server and it's IP to some filename that I already forgot. So much to learn at once!

you're probably talking about /etc/hosts

smbmount(ie mount -t smbfs) doesn't do netbios name lookups

So that's why I have to update /etc/hosts every time the modem restarts...
