Am in need to do a file copy (ie cp, scp, etc) from a Linux box onto a Windows box. I understand that we can do the following on the Linux box:
smbmount //winpc/shared /mnt/share
However, I'm getting the following:
/usr/bin/smbmount //hostname.com/abc/def /usr/local/mountpoint
params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file "/etc/samba/smb.conf":
No such file or directory
Can't load /etc/samba/smb.conf -run testparm to debug it
Anonymous login sucessful
25788: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid share name)
SMB connection failed
1) The file /etc/samba/smb.conf indeed doesn't exist. But since it does say "Anonymous login sucessful" I guess it's fine?
2) The Windows folder is actually a Sharepoint folder accessible by anyone. However, I can't login to the Windows box as an admin to share it and actually give it a name. Correct me if I'm wrong but if it's accessible by everyone I'd imagine that it's shared, right?
3) If I type file://hostname.com/abc/def into my Windows Explorer, it does open up the directory.
Any idea how to fix this?
