mount -t cifs permission denied by mount -t smbfs works fine

I am having trouble mounting with cifs, but mounting the exact same command with smbfs works fine. The share is on another samba server and is set to full public guest access.
# mount -t cifs //servername/sharename /mnt/temp -o password="" 
mount error 13 = Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page ( mount.cifs)   ==> /var/log/messages

Try this syntax:
cifsmount //sharename/directory  /mnt/temp -P "password"

Are passwords set up? Check this file - default location:

there is no cifsmount command.

cifs is separate from smb even though it uses the smb protocol. It normally requires a password.

Do you cifs installed? what OS are you on?
