[Samba] Compatability Issue?

No, but now...

If I replace the re-directed host name on the fstab entry with an IP address

//earth/jobs /earth/jobs   cifs   


mount /earth/jobs

works for the first of my several tunnels, but continues to fail on the 
subsequent mounts, which all went to, but different ports.

I feel that my first issue must be related to cifs host name resolution 
and my FC5/cifs combo must deal with that differently than RHEL3/samba 
did. The nsswitch.conf allows all info to be found in files.

Must I be running nmbd, and do I need to do something to tell it how to 
find a tunnel to the other network?

thanks again,
