Linux can mount samba shares but not windows shares
I am running RH9. I can access other samba shares using mount -t smbfs... and using Nautilus 2.2.1 . There are two different Sambas running on our network and I can access them with no problems. However, whenever I attempt to access any of the windows shares (every computer in the office has at least one folder shared for backup purposes) I cannot access them at all.
mount -t smbfs -o username=username,password=password //computer/folder /tmp/smbmount run on any of the windows shares results in "Connection to computer failed SMB connection failed". Nautilus returns "Couldn't display "computer", because no host "computer" could be found...".
Incidentally, I can no longer browse Network Neighborhood from any machine (linux nor windows). However, I do not believe this is related as I can mount the windows shares manually from the other windows machines.
