Samba wont mount my window shares


When i run
mount -t smbfs //192.168.0.2/c /mnt/test

I get this error message

7822: session request to 192.168.0.2 failed (Called name not present)
7822: session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)
7822: session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)
SMB connection failed

I have looked at the /etc/samba.conf and the /etc/samba/smb.conf also

Anyone know the problem?

Check your logs on your Samba box. Specifically /var/log/samba/log.nameofyourWindowsbox
This works for me:
[root@Morbo bax]# smbmount //printserver/homes /mnt

Well, what I would do next is find out how to enable more verbose logging. I bought a book, http://www.booksmatter.com/book.asp?...130409421&cp=0 and it helped me immensely. Also, joining the Samba mailing list helped me quite a bit.

Can you at least see the shares from linux:
smbclient -L <ipaddr>
(Just press return when it asks for a password)

For samba documentation etc goto www.samba.org.

Do you have windows networking and filesharing setup correctly? What kind of windows i.e. XP, Win98?
