I have a drive F: shared on XP Pro. Earlier this week I could access this remotely from Linux as

 mount //traverse/F\$ /mnt/tmp  -o username=Administrator,password=pw

Now, I am getting Permission denied. I don't recall that I did anything on the XP to change things. I then tried creating a new share named JOE with permissions for full access, anybody. Same Permission denied results.

What's up and how do I fix this?
