I have a Win95 PC running TCP/IP. I can use FTP and TELNET to connect other Unix servers (not just a specific IP address, but also the servers sharename), but I can't map a drive. It say's that it can't find the sharename, but I can without any problems ping the servers.
The servers running Samba, and we have no problems with WinNT4.0 workstations.

I have resolv the problem. The PC is a Compaq portable. The problem is caused by Compaq, who has changed the network card without telling about it and including the old driver with the PC. After talking to Compaq, I got the right driver and everythingh just work now.
Thanks for your answers.
