mount samba share as guest user


Very simple samba shares set up for anonymous access only.

Trying to mount the shares under opensuse 10.2; keep getting "permission denied" error.

Here is the appropriate entry in fstab:

//server/share /home/user/dir cifs rw,username=guest,password=,uid=1000,gid=100 0 0

I can post the samba.conf file off the server if that would be helpful. Thanks much.

Thanks. That's making progress. No longer having permissions troubles.

When trying to mount using fstab, the computer can't see the server. I can browse to it just fine. Any further suggestions?

Are you using the IP address of the Windows system in the fstab line entry?? You might want to delay mounting the remote server until after the network is up and running.

Some do this by placing a mount command in the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file (Red Hat based system), example below;

mount -t cifs //Server/share /mnt/point -o credentials=/path/to/cifs.txt -rw

The cifs.txt file is just the username and password used for the remote system, example;

username=fred
password=letmein
