when accessing a samba server version 2.2.8a from a Pocket PC with Windows
you can give a password and tell the Pocket PC to remember it.
But, if you switch off the device or remove the LAN-card the stored password
is lost (or send in a different way as Pocket PC 2002).
Maybe the procedure of sending the stored password has been changed,
because Pocket PC 2002 works fine with samba,
and accessing a W2K works also fine with Windows Mobile 2003...
So, I tried accessing a samba server version 3.0.0 from a Pocket PC with
2003, but I always got the error message:
"Cannot find file '\\' (or one of its components).
Check to ensure the path and filename are correct and
that all required libraries are available."
I tried to connect to '\\hostname' or '\\hostname\path' but it is alway
replaced with '\\'.
When I tried '//hostname' or '//hostname/path' the same error message
'//hostname' or '//hostname/path' instead of '\\'.
With Pocket PC 2002 or W2K a connection to samba server version 3.0.0 is
without any problems.
Any ideas how to manage this?
