Connect from AIX 5.x to windows Server 2000 Shared Folder

I followed this procedure in order to mount in AIX a shared folder in windows server 2000.


Ive tested the shared folder from other windows Server, and its fine.

What Ive do in AIX is:

Logon as root
Under /Home/spss/ I create a new folder named Back

In Windows Server 2000

Create a shared folder named backups
The user "Administrator" has full access to this folder

Under AIX, use Smitty cifs_fs with the following

Server name: W2kServer
Username: Administrator
Password: AdministratorPassword
Share name: /backups
Mount Read Only: NO
uid: 0
gid: 0
fmode 755
Directory over which to mount: /back

After execute this, receive the message "There was an error connecting to the share, check the device nsmb0 if is available (It is), or the username or password (both are already checked)"

Only for testing, I telnet from AIX to the windows Server, and receive the message "Server Allows NTLM authentication only, Server has closed connection"

I dont know if the problem is AIX server side or windows.
Thanks in advance
