CIFS/fstab New files auto write-protected
I am running OpenSuse 10.2 in virtual PC 2007. In my fstab, I have the following line to access a share on my host machine (windows XP pro):
//192.168.0.1/shared /home/john/marsbox cifs credentials=/home/john/.pwdfile,auto,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,rw 0 0
This results in a nicely mounted share, to which I can read and write. The problem is howver, that every file I make is automatically write-protected! Needless to say, any programs that make a new file on the disk and want to write to it, will bail.
What am I doing wrong? How do I prevent new files created from linux to be write protected? In windows, I have the access rights set to allow 'everyone' full control (don't worry, F&PS is blocked over the firewall).
