I'm trying to do a backup of my Windows 2000 PC share thru the smbtar.
However, I get this problem:

samba at sunA:~[516]$ smbtar -v -s dpuk -t backup.out -x "backup"
server    is dpuk
share     is backup\
tar args  is
tape      is backup.out
blocksize is
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[COMPUTING] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)

What does this mean? I've already set the appropriate permissions on my PC
share but I still get this access denied message. Thanks.
