mounting share - how?

I have problems mounting a share from our NT server.
Connecting to the share via
smbclient '//snsrv051/public' -W ... -U ...
and typing my password works nicely but
smbmount '//snsrv051/public' /mnt/snsrv051/public -W secunet-si -U
just gives me the following error message:

Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Server time is Fri Jan 29 09:44:40 1999
Timezone is UTC+1.0
Session setup failed for username=nardmann myname=SN-PC119
destname=SNSRV051   ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
You might find the -U, -W or -n options useful
Sometimes you have to use `-n USERNAME' (particularly with OS/2)
Some servers also insist on uppercase-only passwords

It does not ask me for a password at all!
This problem occurs with samba 2.0.0.
Does anyone know why this happens?
