samba dns problem


Im trying to connect with fedora c3 to a w2k server.
When using konqueror, smb://servername/share , I get this message :
An error occured while loading smb://severname/share : connection to host smb://servername/share is broken.


If I use the ip adres of the w2k server smb:// then it does work, any explanitions ?

Well - is there a DNS server on your network?

What does host servername say?

Chances are that the box is only known to WINS,
which won't be picked up by your name resolution
(WINS != DNS) ... the servername would have to
be picked up before SaMBa starts looking.

If there IS no local DNS server, just add
IP servername
to your /etc/hosts
