So I mounted a directory over the network. This is my fstab entry:
//192.168.100.100/files /mnt/files cifs rw,username=uname,password=passw,_netdev,uid=1000,gid=100 0 0
As root I can nano,pico,vi, etc. a file and save.
As user I can nano a file and save. (Hurray for console).
If I try and modify one of the existing files
in the mount it gives me a "Error writing /mnt/files/file.txt No such file or directory".
My local user id is the same user id of the files on the remote machine. eg 1100 here, 1100 there. group id is the same on both machines.
Hope anyone can help.
