I got this message :
3614: Connection to XP failed
SMB connection failed
when i try to mount mount a share with netbios name like that:
$mount -t smbfs -o username=test,password=test //Xp/share /mnt/floppy

if i mount the same share with ip address that's no problem.

if i test this :

$smbclient -U=test -L

i get that output:
Domain=[Xp] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

Sharename       Type      Comment

if i do the same with netbios name:
$smbclient -U=test -L Xp

i have that one :
Connection to Xp failed
