Unable to mount Windows share to SUSE 11.3


I'm pretty new to using Linux and I installed SUSE 11.3 on Sun Virtual Box to play around with it. I am trying to mount one of my Windows shares to my SUSE system and I'm getting an error "Mount error(13): Permission denied". I have made sure my Windows permissions are open, in fact I used a test share and added everyone and gave full control. Below is the command I tried to use to mount it.

mount -t cifs -o username=Nick //computername/share /mnt/temp

I pre-created the temp folder under mnt and I tried both my PC name and my ip address in the above command with the same error each time. I also tried using my pc name in my username string as well "username=pcname/Nick" and that did not work either. Can someone advise me why this error is occuring?

Kernel version: 2.6.34-12

Thanks,

Nick

Hi. For some annoying reason, I apparently have to post this before I can make any other posts. So welcome to the forum, I guess. From an absolute noob.
