Question How to mount a folder incliding a space?


Hello there,

Iīm fighting to mount a folder with a space... (i canīt rename it as itīs a network share)

the filder location Iīm trying to mount is like:
Code:
//10.26.120.10/MSD ISO
Here is what i try (with no luck):
Code:
mount -t smbfs -o username=my_user_name,password=My_password "//10.26.120.10/MSD ISO" iso

7565: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid share name)
SMB connection failed
I try also this:
Code:
mount -t smbfs -o username=my_user_name,password=My_password //10.26.120.10/MSD\ ISO iso

7565: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid share name)
SMB connection failed
Does any one have a clue how to do that?

Thanks,
Angel.

What sharename is displayed by smbclient ?

Try

smbclient -L 10.26.120.10

See what sharename is displayed there.
Use the samename and mount the share.


The second format you have specified should work with the proper share nanme.
