The SMB command for "Tree Connect".  It is the point at 
which you actually connect to the share.  In user mode 
security, there are three basic steps to connect to a share
with respect to SMB

   - Negotiate the protocol to use between the client and server
   - User validation in the Session setup

   - Actually mounting the share using a tree connection

Possible reasons for failing would be

  * the share you are trying to connect to 
    does not actually exist. Check your spelling 
    and syntax in smb.conf

  * permissions on the share (or the file level)
    do not allow you to access it
