Hello List,

I have problems mounting a windows share.I am running samba version 2.2.8a
on a Debian woody Server. The share I want to mount is on a W2k Client.
I get this error message:
# mount -t smbfs -o username=admin_user,password=mypassword //server/share
421: session request to failed (Called name not present)
421: session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)

Can you help me?

Best regards
Roland Schmid
