I'm running OpenSuse 10.3 and trying to use a NAS drive (bought from SmallDrives http://www.smalldrives.com/
), The drive knows about Samba and FTP
My problems are
(1) I've been unable to mount the drive using CIFS.
In fstab I have
//<drive>/<share> /mnt/<point> cifs username=<me>,password=<mine>
attempting to mount gets me
"mount error 5 = Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)"
I've tried variations on this theme but all with the same effect.
(2) Possible character-set problems with LFTP
As FTP seemed to be working I thought I would try using lftp to mirror my laptop to the drive. It seems to get a little confused with any files containing an accented character. It manages to copy the files,but on subsequent runs it attempts to copy them again, as if it wasn't recognising that they already existed. The error I get are like the following:
---> DELE <filename with odd character>
<--- 550 Requested action not taken.
rm: 550 Requested action not taken. (<filename with odd character>)
I've tried different character set options in .lftprc in case that might help, but to no avail.
I've checked the files by accessing the drive via konqueror (smb://<user>@<server>) and there are files with accented characters in their names - so they are being copied. All of these create errors on subsequent runs of lftp because it tries to copy them again.
I'd appreciate any suggestions on either of these problems.
