Post by BSD » Sat, 04 Jul 1998 04:00:00



I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong or if i forgot to set something up but when i try to mount one of
my networked winNT shared drives i get this message:

bsdn:/# smbmount //bsdn-storage/images /home/ftp/pub
mount error: No such device
Please look at smbmount's manual page for possible reasons

But when i use the smbclient \\\\bsdn-storage\\images <password>, it can access and do everything
right. Someone please help :)

If you have to use a password with smbclient, don't you also have to
include a password when mounting it?

I smbmount a cdrom on a Win95 machine in /home/ftp/pub/cdrom-smb
directory.  But it is read only with no password.  I don't have the
exact command because it is on a machine at work.

: directory.  But it is read only with no password.  I don't have the

Tantalizing isn't it?  I also await an answer but my messages goes like this:

bash# smbmount '//Win95 Box/cd_rom_share' /mntpoint

Win95 Box: unknown host
        The -I option may be  useful.

ok,

bash# smbmount '//Win95 box/cd_rom_share' /mntpoint -I 'Win95 Box'

Win95 Box: unknown host

I may have figured it out.  Do a lsmod and see if you have smbfs loaded.  If
not, then load it.  Also set it up to load at boot time.  Since I'm a newbie
and my only experience is SW3.5, uncomment the line that contains smbfs in
the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules files (RH, or other linux dist's I don't know).

The reference is,

http://www.pk.edu.pl/pub/network/samba/docs/autoreply.txt  (#13 and #27 are
significant).

So does /home/ftp/pub exist?

Try mounting your drive someplace you commonly use, like /mnt/floppy or
/mnt/cdrom to make sure you're not having a permissions problem. The
~/ftp directory tree has some bizarre permissions in it by default.

You may need some more options on your command line as well. I use
/sbin/smbmount //server/share /mnt/mountpoint -u myusername -c
mynetbiosname. But I don't think you're getting that far yet anyway. :)

First computer is running slackware 3.5,  with ip of 192.168.111.3 SADIE3. Second running win95.
