??: Samba and Mounting Win95 Shares?

Post by Douglas E. Mitt » Tue, 28 Oct 1997 04:00:00

The recent Linux Journal contained a Samba article that got me all
interested!  I downloaded the source, compiled, installed.  I can
query and list Win95 shares but there is one option mentioned in the
article that is apparently not (?) in the current version.

How do I mount a Win95 share in the Linux /mnt file system???

I can access the shares via smbclient in the ftp like mode but I'd
like to perform the mount as was mentioned in the magazine article.

I have the HowTo, and 2 different versions of the FAQ but this does
not seem to be covered.  There is a lot of coverage on printing which
is what I want to do next ... but first ...

Thanks in advance for any input!

: How do I mount a Win95 share in the Linux /mnt file system???

The answer might be to download smbfs-2.0.2.tar.gz (I might not
recall the name exactly) from, e.g., Sunsite.  It's misleadingly
named -- it's not smbfs, actually, but the utilities smbmount
and smbumount.

I have a related question.  Using linux 2.1.57, I tried the
version of the utilities in smbfs-2.1.1, and got them almost
working.  Except after mounting a share then unmounting it,
subsequently, after mounting a new share, "ls" reports it can't
find the files that were in the first share.  Maybe someone
can suggest what I might have done wrong.



1. getting win95 shares on win95 machines to map with a login script with samba and win95

This may be a win95 question
I have 2 win95 boxes logging into a samba "domain" and running login
I have the two machines both running login scripts and mapping drives
on the samba server no problem at all
but when u add shares that are on other win95 machines it always
prompts me for a password no matter how many times i log into them
it is driving me nuts
i have already deleted the password files on both 95 machines and
tryied it over it still prompts me for a password but only on the
win95 shares the ones on the samba server go thru no problem and no
if anyone knows how to do this it would be a great help
