I am having a small problem with a bsd box of mine. Using the file
manager in kde, I can type \\ip_address and get prompted for a username
and password for the coresponding server on my domain. However, When I
type, \\servername, I again get prompted for a username and password,
but it gets rejected. I think it is having problems looking up the name
... which is kind of strange to me as I can ping the server by name.
Does any one have an idea how to fix this problem .. I googled for a bit
but was unable to find a solution.
