Thanks!! but now I have another problem, smbclient gives the following.
I search deja news and this is a common error message and all solutions
were to enable netbios over TCP/IP. I checked and this
is anbled but I guess I am not understanding what is meant by a netbios
name - which may be the problem?? 

Do you think some misconfiguration with netbios names could cause such a
problem? I can connect from the PC below runing win2000 to my SOlaris 2.6

Thanks :)
