Smb4K, mounting and smb://


Would someone be kind enough to point me in thr right direction with a big stick for the following, please?

I have succesfully installed Samba, kdenetwork and Smb4K.
I am accessing a Win2K machine (//Zorba) from my Linux box (FC 6), using either the Administrator or current user (also part of Administrators) account on the Win2K machine.

This does work:

1. Konqueror using smb-protocol,e.g. 'smb://cj@zorba/C - WIN'.

2. Mounting as command (not root) using IP-address, e.g. 'mount -t cifs '//192.168.1.102/C - WIN' /home/cj/tmp/win -o username=cj,password=xxxx'.

3. The mount point created using IP-address above will show up correctly in the right-side pane in Smb4K.

4. Using Smb4k as root, I can mount fine.


This does not work:

1. Mounting as command (root or not, no diff.) using computer name, e.g. 'mount -t cifs '//ZORBA/C - WIN' /home/cj/smb4k -o username=Administrator,password=xxxx' (I have tried this with the workgroup named also).

2. Using Smb4K for mounting. Although all the shares are shown, when mounting from here the mount shows up briefly in the right-side pane , then disappears again (in the tooltip, it will show as mounted-yes for a split second only if I look quickly).
Nothing is created in the smb4k-folder.
I have enable the use of 'sudo' in the Smb4k options.


As a complete Linux noop, I a sure I am overlooking something idiotic, so if a kind person could point the dunce towards the donkey poster...?


All the best...

Have you tried updating any packages on your system? There might be an available patch or update for Samba.
Code:
# yum install updates

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I did that, no change sadly...

Poop.

I hate to say this, but I really don't know what else to consider. Checking /etc/fstab is out, as Samba shares are mounted on the fly using smbmount.

Are samba-common and samba-client (or smbclient) installed?

Have you checked all of the possible (firewall/security) settings on the Windows 2000 machine?

As far as I know, yes.
Remember, it lets me through both via the smb-protocol and on mounting with IP-address... just not on mounting via machine name or through Smb4k.
