mounting folders on a win2k PC
my laptop is running Fedora 8 (kernel ver. 184.108.40.206-137) and i'm trying to mount a remote folder, residing on an old PC named snail and running win2k. This works fine...
mount -t cifs //xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/share /mnt/snail_share/ -o credentials=snail_pass
...as long as i provide snail's IP adress, but doesn't work with snail's network name. Since both machines get IP addresses from the ADSL modem/router, using network names instead of IPs would be preferable. Is there any solution?
snail is configured to participate in a workgroup and SAMBA server is NOT running linux machine (i tried to start smb service - it doesn't seem to make any difference)
