Default Cannot be found the specified unit

I run the command G: \ \ 172.16.196.2 \ Cart_Cond
where
\\172.16.196.2 is the 'WinXP gatway'
and Cart_Cond is a shared linux folder to open .
I get the error cannot found the unit specified
Yet the command okay. I 've done this before!
What can be the problem ?
Thanks

can type the following command to access the share.
