Unrelated. It's just saying that the server disconnected and smb_retry

Also, smbfs is a client, but being visible to windows boxes is a server
thing (nmbd & smbd) so you should look at the logs for those. A wild guess
is that you have some firewall rules blocking the traffic.

I assume that the linux router you speak of is on the same network as the
win2k boxes and that it is the one you can't see? Otherwise I believe it
won't work without wins servers, remote announce and other samba magic.
