Can't mount pc share on Red Hat 6.1 box

I've tried to find as much info about this problem before posting to no avail.

I'm trying:
mount -t smbfs -o workgroup=ansi,username=myname,password=mypassword //server/share /nt

I get:
wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //server/share

I also tried Sharity Lite and get:

# shlight //server/share /nt -U myname -W ansi -D 0xff password:
psitable_insert(): inserting inode 449722290: -><-
Kernel: smb_proc_connect: Passed SESSION REQUEST.

Kernel: smb_proc_connect: Normal exit
Using port 1024 for NFS.

Going to mount...
nfs mount /nt: [19] Operation not supported by device

It looks like everthing works great until the final mount operation.

Thanks for any direction here.

What do you mean by PC share? Is it remote Windows shares? It looks to me that you're mounting smb shares.

If it is smb/windows share can you try this:

# smbmount //windows_host/share_name /mnt

Your first example shows using the mount command. It looks like your kernel may not have smbfs support configured. I believe this causes a problem when using the mount command versus using smbmount.

Another option and a good first step would be to try using smbclient to see if you can access the share. I see you are using RedHat 6.1. On one of my older linux systems I had to upgrade samba and enable encryption to access a Windows NT share. This situation doesn't look like a permission problem, but I thought I would throw that in for completeness.
