    Could it be the version of libsmbclient?

    If so, could I replace it with the version in 7.10 and if so how?

    Would I need to run dpkg or something else, as synaptic doesn't seem to have an option to install an older version of any software?
    Can anyone help please?

    Another update.

    I have now set up samba on my desktop machine.

    It's very weird - here is my setup.

    my NAS box is on 192.168.1.10

    I have set up my user name and password on both machines to be the same.

    from my desktop : smbmount //192.168.1.10/PUBLIC ./nas1 works.

    from my laptop, with the same name for a directory on my home directory there : smbmount //192.168.1.10/PUBLIC ./nas1 does not work.

    My desktop machine is on 192.168.1.30 and issuing the command

    smbmount //192.168.1.30/nas1 ./nas1 from my laptop works.

    So I can read and write to //192.168.1.30/nas1 which has, in fact

    //192.168.1.10/PUBLIC mounted on it.

    This means that, although I cannot mount it directly I can via the desktop PC. I have full access to it.

    Anyone any idea how I can fix this?
