I have sucessfully installed samba 2.2.8a from the port collection, and
when using my windows machine I can browse shares I defines in my
smb.conf perfectly. 

However when I try to mount the windows share from freebsd I get the

mount_smbfs -I //mick at$ /mnt/2k 
mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = Connection reset by

However the share is active because of the following 

smbclient -L 
can't determine netmask for 
added interface ip= bcast= nmask= 
session request to failed (Called name not present) 
session request to 198 failed (Called name not present) 
Domain=[MSHOME] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

I used to mount this machine using samba no problem under Linux, but
under freeBSD 5.1 it is proving to be a problem. 

I also recently installed the latest service pack on the win2k box,
could this be a issue? i.e Change my 2k setting to use plain text

Thanks for any comments
