I've been working on this problem for a while, and have tried numerous different solutions that I've found here, as well as other places on the net, and have yet to get my problem solved. I know this subject is worn out, but I've tried without success. Here's my setup:
Windows XP Pro system with files to share
Redhat 9 trying to auto mount the windows shares
I could get the share mounted, but only root had write permissions. chmod 777 did not work - I could not change the permissions of the shares, even as root. If I launched the application that I wanted to use as root, I could open/read/write as expected. If I launched as a user, only rx permissions granted.
I've tried several variations of what you suggest - using both 0000 and 0777 as the umask value, to no avail. Any other suggestions? I should note that the permissions of my mounted share show up as follows:
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4096 Jan 1 1980 mountpoint
With the following, I get automatic mount, but no write permissions except for root
