This problem seems to come up on this forum frequently, however none of the situations appear to be the same as mine.

Linux box: RH 9.0; Name: tlix
Windows workstation: blue-thunder

No problem connecting to the WS with

//blue-thunder/drive_d password

PDC name: 2k-server

I cannot connect to it (I can "see" tlix from the PDC and access the files)

I use //2k-server/VOL1/data password -U todd and I get this message:

added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[WEB01] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME

So, Samba finds the PDC, but something is not correct and I need some suggestions as to what I should check.

VOL1 is a drive
"data" is a shared directory
"todd" is a listed user

"web01" is the domain and I have used smbpasswd to authenicate

Is there a way to get more detailed info about the failure?

Many thanks...
