>I already posted this in smb-clients, but seeing the load difference
>I repost in the samba list.
>I am currently using samba 3.0.10 with kernel 2.6.9.
>In the doc one is encouraged to use 'security = user' level.
>If I then connect with 'smbclient //machine/share -U myname%mypass' all works
>well. But when I try to mount the share localy with
>smbmount //machine/share mountpoint -o "username=myname,password=mypass"
smbmount => not made here, please go talk to the kernel boys
mount -t cifs often works better than mount -t smbfs.  Give that a try 
and then go talk to the kernel boys if it's still broken.

>Is this a known problem? And if so, what is the solution?
