 I am trying to mount a Windows share using smbmount. On the Linux machine

 I also have an embedded system whose target is MIPS running on Linux. I
cross compile samba for MIPS target ( only smbmount ) and try running it on
my embedded system. Previously this use to work. Now there have been some

Samba is concerned there should be no change, since i am taking care of the
smb.conf file. I had never in the past used the /etc/passwd file so i guess
that should not be a problem since my windows share is accessible by
 When i try to to a smbmount //windows-machine-name/share-name /mnt/smbmnt i
get the following errors

Password: ( i press an enter here )
685: session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
SMB connection failed

Thanks a lot in advance.

Thanks and Regards,
