Mounting cifs qns
smbfs is replaced by cifs and I have one problem with it.

With smbfs, I will


mount -t smbfs -o username=hero,password=zzz //server/folder /mymount
With cifs,


mount -t cifs -o username=hero,password=zzz // /mymount
Is it possible to use //server instead of using IP address?

I am able to smbclient it. But cifs does not take in //server, only IP.

Oh ya, I am using openSUSE 10.3

which error are you getting? may be you will add this IP to the host file directly.

mount error: could not find target server. TCP name server/folder not found

No ip address specified and hostname not found

Adding to a host file maybe a good option...
But my fileserver is using DHCP. That be a problem right?
