smbclient - connect to a Win share


Can anyone help me because I can't connect to a windows share with smbclient??

The share is \\brwwd\toShare\Local\

and I try like this to connect to it:

smbclient //brwwd/toShare/Local/

and the error I get is
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME

I'm on AIX 5.2 and the win server is running Windows 2003 Server.

Thanks in advance,

Yes, I have tried with that too, but it's the same thing.

Thanks for your reply,
