From my mini, I access some windows servers for data storage, mapping SMB.  For some reason, after upgrading to Mountain Lion, I can't get to those drives (shares) any longer.


They  are accessible from other computers on the network, and they are even accessible from a virtual Win7 (Fusion) session on the mini.  But in the main OS X mountain lion environment on the mini, they are not accessible through any of the usual means (Finder, etc).


I even installed ForkLift and ForkLift can't get to them either.


If I go to GO -> Connect to Server, I get "There was a problem connecting to the server "".  (Not the real IP.)


If I use the existing entry in the list of shares I get "Connection Failed".


Needless to say, noting on the server has changed, and Mountain Lion left the shortcuts/share names/startup connection commands (which used to open the server drives when the mini started up) in tact.  But actually connecting and using docs on the server, no dice.


What am I missing?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
