    error trying to use smbmount


    I'm trying to mount a windows share on my network from my Debian Sarge box using:

    Code:
    smbmount //192.168.1.160/www /mnt/winwww -o username=user,password=passwd
    In doing so, I get the following error:

    Could not resolve mount point /mnt/winwww

    I am able to see the share by running


    Code:
    smbclient -L //192.168.1.160 -U user

    I get

    Domain=[GRUNDLE] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- xfer Disk IPC$ IPC Remote IPC D$ Disk Default share SharedDocs Disk print$ Disk Printer Drivers projects Disk timesheets Disk ADMIN$ Disk Remote Admin C$ Disk Default share www Disk session request to 192.168.1.160 failed (Called name not present) session request to 192 failed (Called name not present) Domain=[GRUNDLE] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager] Server Comment --------- ------- Workgroup Master --------- -------



    Anyone know what my problem might be?


    PS - I also tried

    Code:
    mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=passwd //192.168.1.160/www /mnt/winwww
    and got the same error
