I am having trouble accessing Windows XP share using smbmount [anonymous]. The "smbmount" command, would say "Anonymous login successful", but when we try to access the folders /list the contents, "Permission denied" is the error that props up. 

smbmount //MY-XP/XP-SHARE test/ -o "username=anonymous,guest"
Anonymous login successful
#ls test
ls: test: Permission denied

Any help is appreciated.
