Error with OS/2 accessing SAMBA server

I've been able to map the share just fine under OS/2. But, when I click on the drive I get the error "No objects were found that matched the specified find criteria. The system call level is incorrect." I'm running Samba version 3.0.2-6.3E on White Box Linux 3. I can access the shares just fine on an XP Pro box. Any ideas as to why this is?

try this.....
make a directory say....
mkdir /mnt/samber
then....
smbclient -t smbfs //computer/share /mnt/samber -o username=xxxxxxx

(it will prompt for passwd if all goes well.....)
'computer' is the sharING computer name..... and 'share' is the sharename..... xxxxxxx is the username.....

goodluck....

oops.... i got so confused the first time i commented - i was thinking u have problems loading the xp share in white box and the os/2 works fine - ur first line is very misleading if u read it properly......

now that i re-read .... about 4 times ... i think i got what u had probs with ..... but since the xp access the shares - this seems more an os/2 prob.....
just make sure that u are using the same user to login to the samba server - both with the xp and the os/2 - if its the same .... i think the prob is with the os/2 ....

"i think the prob is with the os/2"

Do you have any ideas as to what it could be?

it could be the user - did you use the same user to login from the os/2 as u did with the xp ??
could you try accessing a windows share form the os/2 ??

Yes, I used the same user. The OS/2 machine can access other Windows NT shares just fine. The only difference between the NT server and the Samba server is NetBEUI. The Samba server is not running NetBEUI. The OS/2 machine does have NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled though.

what is the os/2 config ?? version, are you using the lanman client for os/2 ?
(if not try microsoft's lanman client for os/2 - ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/clients/lanman.os2/ ) ....

Wow, this one is a tad old. The problem was a result of Samba's incompatability with OS/2. Please refund my points. Thanks.
