connecting linux to windows

By jehu ·
I am trying to connect to a windows share on win 2000 advance server.I try to mount the share on my Linux box but I get a session setup failed:ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.) the command I use is
smbmount //day/2kshare myshare -U john -I 10.0.0.1
then I am asked for the password and when I type the password I get the above error. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong, why I cannot connect.

Try this way,
mount -t smbfs -o user=yourID,pwassword=whatever //machinename/folder /wheremountto

You may need to edit yor hosts file for machine name.

Good Luck,
Sunny,

I finally got the energy to read my samba book before you answered this question. I also got it to work using a similar command from my samba book. If I did not have the book this would work also. So you get the points.

Also, in your samba config make sure that your Linux machine is in the same workgroup/domain as the W2K machine.
