I'm trying to set up a Buffalo Pro Duo NAS drive to be user mountable via an fstab entry. I can mount and use it perfectly with:
mount -t cifs -o guest //192.168.0.194/krayNetDrive /X:
However no matter what I put in the fstab entry I get this
icarus@daedalus:~$ mount /X:/
mount error 1 = Operation not permitted
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
My fstab entry currently looks like this:
//192.168.0.194/krayNetDrive /X: cifs guest,noauto,user,umask=000 0 0
If I take away the guest option I get a password prompt which gives me the abover error if I leave it blank, put in the admin password for the NAS or the password for the one user I have setup.
If I put in the username = icarus I get a password prompt that gives the same behavior.
I've tried removing the umask option thinking that maybe I can't set a umask for a samba share, but that doesn't change my results. Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?
As an aside, is there any way to suppress the error messages about not being able to maintain file permissions when I copy stuff onto the NAS?
It's not that annoying when using command line tools, but when I'm melding a file tree onto the NAS and Meld gives me a prompt for every single file it's incredibly frustrating. I can't find an option in meld for this, will any of the share options do this?
Thanks in advance.
