Hello all,

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.
