In Windows 2003 when connecting to a CIFS share on a linux box running samba and connecting by IP the share is always available - when connecting by host name after a time permission errors will prevent accesss. Messeges such as 'you do not have permissions.... to access this netwoek resource...

Using 'ping' as well as 'nslookup' from command line show that the IP is being properly resolved via DNS...
