I saw at my friend´s office that it is possible to mount WIN-NT-Shares of an other computer in my network to a
linux system...(with SMBMOUNT)
But I have the problem that it doesn´t work at my linux system!

I want to mount ->
to my computer with the  IP : (Linux-System)

the SHARES  "/DownUP" and "/LOG" of the NT Workstation
with the
NETBIOS-NAME: "wombel" and IP

on the mounting point : /home/marc !!!

How can I do that ?
I tried the following command:
smbmount //wombel/DOWNUP /home/marc/ -U MARC -C
Nox_machine: unknown host
        The -I option may be useful

Yours sincerly

Does the server exists in hosts or in the dns?

the -c -u shouldnt be capital leters

after the -c short_name_of_computer
-u user_name_on_nt_server
