cannot mount NAS file server Ubuntu 9.0.4
I am unable to access a NAS file server with my Ubuntu 9.0.4 box.
Previously, after giving permissions on the NAS box, ( can't remember exactly how I did it - trial and error worked in the end. ) I was able to access it using the 'places' applet.
Now, I am getting the message 'unable to mount location - failed to receive share list from server' using the places applet.
I am able to ping it by IP address but when I try to ping using the netbios name, it resolves to a strange ip address (188.8.131.52) . My subnet is 192.168.0.xx .Is this a clue ?
It is a workgroup of just 4 machines, all but one are Ubuntu clients - the other is a WinXP machine.
