Damn permission on LAN directories


Hello there. For the problem I have, I've read plenty of documents but the problem still stands.

I have my Linux accessing my NT based office LAN. I mount this remote directory:

//server/Italy /mnt/server/Italy smbfs credentials=/etc/samba/auth.server.paolo,users,rw,exec,umask=000,quiet, 0 0

and the purpose is to read and write the Italy dirctory and all its subdirectories and files. This has to be allowed to my user account (and not only to root account). The problem I have is that I can only read and access the files/directories but cannot write/delete any file.

What the hell command I have to set up in my etc/fstab to allow any user to rw any files/directory on remote NT machine ? What I got from docs don't work by now, then I need any help from any of you !

Thanks
Paolo

This fstab line looks good to me. Are you positive that the account specified in /etc/samba/auth.server.paolo has RW permissions? What are the permissions on the mount point, /mnt/server/Italy?

I do this all the time from Red Hat 7.3 to a Windows 2000 server, which RW permissions. My fstab line looks like:
//server/share /mnt/mountpoint smbfs user,workgroup=DOMAIN,username=USERNAME 0 0

How can I check if the account in /etc/samba/auth.server.paolo has rw rights ? In the /etc/samba/auth.server.paolo file there's only the username, password and domain name !

Thanks !
Paolo

Log into the server from another machine (WINDOWS) and see if you can write files there.
