hey people, i have a problem which is driving me crazy with my network, i have been trying to find help on the net for weeks now, but couldn't find any helpful sites relating to my problem so i thought i'd try posting it on here. I have a network with three computers
machine#1: 10.0.0.1 windows 2000 prof
machine#2: 10.0.0.3 linux suse 9.0 with Version 2.2.8a-SuSE
machine#3: 10.0.0.4 windows 2000 prof
all machines can ping each other and both windows machines can read each others shares and the shares of the linux machine, in linux i can also mount the shares of machine #1 but not the ones of machine #3 althought when doing
smbclient -L machinename -U user
i can see the shares of machine#3 but when i try to mount them with e.g.
mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxxx //machinename/SGC/ /test
it does not work, neither when i specify workgroup, ip or more options i get the following error:
16025: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid share name)
SMB connection failed
the number 16025 changes btw, if u think i have a typo in my mount command becuase it says invalid share name, that is not the problem, ihave checked that many times, and mounting shares from machine#1 is no problem
smbclient -L machine3 -U user gives this:
added interface ip=10.0.0.3 bcast=10.0.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Got a positive name query response from 127.0.0.1 ( 10.0.0.4 )

as you can see there is a difference in this line with the problem machine:
Got a positive name query response from 127.0.0.1 ( 10.0.0.4 )

both computers have the same username/password which is also added in linux, i set in both windows computer to never be masterbrowser or domain controller and testparm shows this:
