I have a share on my NT box which is shared as read only.  I mount it from
the linux command line with:
mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx //
After running this command, I get this error:
session request to failed
However, I can go into the mounted directory, view the listing, play the
songs, read the files, and in general, have all the access rights and
permissions I should have and do everything I should be able to do after a
succesfull mount.  BUT, after anywhere from 15 mins. to 4 hours, it seems
to fail and starts giving i/o errors when I try to go into the mounted
Why is this command telling me it failed, yet succecced, then fails after a
couple hours?

Thanks all.

Well....    Since no-one in this group was of any use...  What's up?  
Because it wasn't a newbie question, no-one here could figure it out?  Come
on.  I thought this place was supposed to be full of linux networking
gurus.  Well, guess not.  Anyways, I fixed the smbmount problem.


1. Problem mounting NT share on linux 6.1 using smbmount?

OK, I RTFM but I'm still doing something wrong.  
I need to mount an NT2000 shared folder under Linux 6.1.  Here's what
I'm doing:

/etc/fstab entry (tried various options here):
   // /mnt/laptop             smbfs      
noauto,user,owner,rw,user=steve 0 0

And here's the output I get when I try to mount it:

bcast= nmask=
   session request to failed
   session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
   smbmount: login failed
   Could not umount /mnt/laptop: Device or resource busy
   smbmount: exit

   // on /mnt/laptop type smbfs (0)

   ls: /mnt/laptop: Input/output error

I've also tried the same mount using the command:

   ( ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a Tree
Connect or Session Setup are invalid.)

Shouldn't the first method above work?  What's the problem?
If you can point me in the right direction please share.  :)
