Ubuntu unable to mount windows share

I haven’t been able to get my Ubuntu laptop on Windows network for years. This is the best walk through I’ve found. Unfortunately, my apt-get is broken… so I couldn’t do apt-get install win-bind. But, one of the other steps solved the problem.

smbtree returns:
cli_start_connection: failed to connect to JANES<20> ( Error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL

Walk through that hasn’t resolved the problem yet:


sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart does not work in Ubuntu 10.04! However, following the walk through and rebooting completely did work! I can browse networks again!
