2010-09-13 18:04:12     mounting a windows share

I would like to use CIFS to mount a windows share but I get the following error.  I then try the older SMBFS method and it works perfectly.  Any suggestions?





root:/> mount.cifs //fsnt/public /mnt -o username=adam

mount error: could not find target server. TCP name fsnt/public not found

No ip address specified and hostname not found



root:/> smbmount //fsnt/public /mnt -o username=adam


smbfs is deprecated and will be removed from the 2.6.27 kernel. Please migrate to cifs



root:/> mount
