trouble mounting an smbfs system

okay I'm baffled. One one system mounting a windows server works fine.. on the second it fails with the error:
8693: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

my command is:

mount -t smbfs -o username=foo // /mnt/q

same versions of Redhat AS3, same versions of mount..... I can't imagine what is different between the two systems. Any ideas?

I just noticed that smbmount is version 3.0.0-14.3E on the working system and Version 3.0.7-1.3E.1 on the failing one.

I don't know if this is significant though.. oh also, the working one still works if I use the broken system's IP address.

Just an IDEA:
Try putting in your password too. Example: -o username=tridge,password=foobar
If you have no password, just put 'password= '.

try smbmount instead of mount, or smbmnt, but IIRC smbmnt uses smbmount so i would start there.

smbmount -o username=foo // /share/mount

yes i did that without the smbfs tag. try that first, if that does not work, then add the smbfs tag to the same line above. should work.
