I am having trouble using the smbmount command to mount a shared resource on
a win95 box. I am running RH 5.2 using Linux as DHCP server and internet
gateway via dialup modem. I can do nmblookup hostname and see the box fine.
I can do 'smbclient -L hostname' and see all its shared resources without
any problem. When I do smbmount against one of these shared resources on
this box however, I get 'hostname:unknown host - The -I option may be
useful' I have tried all the options applicable to this situation and can't
seem to figure it out.
rpm -q smbfs yields smbfs-2.0.1-4 - Do I need a different version of this,
or isn't smbmount part of the samba install? BTW I am using samba-2.05a.
