After more googling, i have found that others have experienced similar 

I can also use the ip instead of the dns/nmb name, and it works fine..
\\www.xxx.yyy.zzz\username - works fine
\\servername\username - fails

Although i saw people asking about this problem, I did not see an answer - it 
seems to be kerberos related, but has anyone sorted this out yet and have a 
tip for me?
