System: Ubuntu 16.04

Smbclient: Version 4.3.11-Ubuntu

I can use Connect to server in the folder and choose Anonymous to connect to my server correctly, but when I try smbclient //serverip/folder, it returns:

OS=[Windows 6.1] 
Server=[Samba 4.3.11-Ubuntu]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME


And, where does the system amount the server, when I use GUI to connect to a server?


[1] The easiest way for me to reproduce your error is to try to access a subfolder of the share - as in smbclient //server/share/subfolder OR smbclient //server/subfolder.

The sytnax is: smbclient //server/share

[2] When you use Connect to Server it mounts under /run/user/$UID/gvfs
