How to get to samba share by name?

On windows mashine typing in explorer \\ opens shares and 
\\server doesnt.

Mounting localy on server:

mount_smbfs -I //server/data /mnt/samba - works
mount_smbfs //server/data /mnt/samba - mount_smbfs: can't get server 
address: syserr = Operation timed out
ping server - I get good response - ping works to that name.

/etc/hosts: server
