Have you tried using backslashes '\' instead of forwards slashes '/' for
the server and share name part of the mount command?

Hi All,

	I'm sure this has been discussed many times but since I do not
a internet connection, I have to ask this question.. 

[ow_mh at hmweb Dump]$ sudo mount -t smbfs //
708: session request to failed (Called name not present)
708: session request to 129 failed (Called name not present)
Anonymous login successful
708: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

I am trying to mount a shared folder from a windows XP box onto my linux


I did the following and got the following error

% mount -t smbfs //windows_computer_name/shared_foler /mnt/mnt_folder/
Anonymous login successful
4170: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

The folder shared on the windows box has given "Everyone" the read 

what do you suggest I do?
