I'm been struggling on this for weeks to mount a non password protected share for this Nas in Mint 13
when I network browse for the first time to the network shares they work just fine no password needed but when I try to mount them to a direct to make it easier to use on a day to day basis it fails error(13)
I used the following:
sudo mount -t smbfs //10.1.30.6/Data /mnt/Data -o username=admin,workgroup=workgroup
I have tried cifs as well. Having non password protected share there is not docs on how to do it! PLEASE HELP
The /mnt/Data is already existing
This is my result:
sieberts@sieberts-GA-MA785GM-US2H ~ $ sudo mount -t smbfs://10.1.30.6/Data /mnt/Data
Usage: mount -V : print version
mount -h : print this help
mount : list mounted filesystems
mount -l : idem, including volume labels
So far the informational part. Next the mounting.
The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'.
Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted.
mount -a [-t|-O] ... : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab
mount device : mount device at the known place
mount directory : mount known device here
mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command
Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts
a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device.
One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere:
mount --bind olddir newdir
or move a subtree:
mount --move olddir newdir
One can change the type of mount containing the directory dir:
mount --make-shared dir
mount --make-slave dir
mount --make-private dir
mount --make-unbindable dir
One can change the type of all the mounts in a mount subtree
containing the directory dir:
mount --make-rshared dir
mount --make-rslave dir
mount --make-rprivate dir
mount --make-runbindable dir
A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom,
or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid .
Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p passwdfd].
For many more details, say man 8 mount .
The first password prompt is for your users password to grant sudo privileges which can not be blank. There will be a second prompt which I would expect to be blank. I assume that you do not have to enter a password when accessing the NAS from nautilus.
