Trying yesterday with smbclient and was able to connect to my remote drive, but this "ftp like" environment does not allow me to perform my easy backup scripts at night.
:-( why did they suppress the smbmount command &@#...!!!
Plan to try putting all the stuff into /etc/fstab with user,noauto... maybe this evening
Still not able to mount the share, even in the fstab since the mount.cifs or mount -t cifs do not work.
I'd like to know how konqueror is able to perform the stuff.
It seems my Packard-Bell NetStore 3500 device does not support CIFS at all.
I plan to try a new firmware on it.
I know this is a little late but I'm looking for a solution to a similar problem but have found a work around for what you are asking about. I would get the same error when I knew there was a folder by that name. I'm working on a Fedora box connecting to an XP machine on a 2003 domain. I found that if I used the command mount -t cifs /remote_machine/shared_folder /local_folder -o email@example.com it would map just fine or you could use mount.cifs /remote_machine/shared_folder /local_folder -o firstname.lastname@example.org hope this works for you. Happy Bash.
That looks correct to me.
The package cifs-mount replaces the use of smbmount and (I think) is installed as a default when installing samba and samba client.
Create the mount directory as normal and use
mount -t cifs //machine/service /mountpoint -o "user=winuser,password=hfhf,domain=workgroup"
Notice the double slash on the front of the machine name.
You should now also be able to set this up in fstab and allow non root users to mount and unmount the service.
See the man page for mount(8) and mount.cifs(8).
