Question Error: "Tried to connect to session manager, Authentication Rejected, reason : None"


distro: suse 9.0 pro
kernel: 2.4.22

Last night I started getting an error:

I issue this command:

Code:
'mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=pass //hostname or IP/sharedDir /home/user/smbMountPoint
I get this error:

Code:
Warning: Tried to connect to session manager, Authentication Rejected, 
reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed
I took a pretty wild guess so I did a "xhost +" but that didn't do it.

the file /etc/hosts looks ok to me....

Code:
# IP-Address  Full-Qualified-Hostname  Short-Hostname
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost

What could it be? thanks in advance..randomx
