My problem is trying to mount an SMB share from Fedora Core5 to a Windows 98 Machine. Before upgrading from FC4 to FC5 everything worked. I have searched around and it appears that the smbmount and mount -t smbfs options have been deprecated in Samba 3.0.22-1 in favor of CIFS. The command I have been trying now is:
mount -t cifs //192.168.0.126/laptop /mnt/share -o username=chime
whereas I used to be able to do...
mount -t smbfs //192.168.0.126/laptop /mnt/share -o username=chime
but the problem I have now is that it won't mount. I get an error
mount error 112 = Host is down
The host is NOT down, that is the IP address of the laptop running Windows 98 with file and print sharing enabled, and I have named the share "laptop". There is no Firewall installed blocking any ports on the 98 machine.
I can ping it and no other config on it has changed. The only change was going from FC4 to FC5. Here are the results of my smb.conf testparm
Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE
server string = Linux Server
guest account = guest
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
printcap name = /etc/printcap
dns proxy = No
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
hosts allow = 192.168.0.126
cups options = raw
comment = Home Directories
read only = No
Anyone have any insight to this issue. Does Windows 98 NOT support CIFS ?
