You can see that without any hack, yust type:

If you define on your linux box an user
with userid=33 and groupid 33, you will have read/write access to mybookworld shares
adduser  -u 33 -g 33 mybook
I have the same issue, i can't solve this with your information. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.

I have this Mybook in my network and made a share "MUSIC" on it through the webinterface.
Then in my ubuntu server I make this mount :

root@server:~# mount -t cifs -o username=user,password=passwd,uid=33,gid=33 //IP.OF.MY.BOOK/MUSIC /media/mybook

then it aceepts it and I can see the mount, do I have to chown /media/mybook ?
When I run Midnight commander as root and I try to copy some folders and files to /media/mybook it gives me this error
chown: changing ownership....... permission denied

It doe smake only the first foldername but nothing else.

So what am I doing wrong here?

Hello rytec,

I don't use ubuntu because I prefer to work under root for system command, so I'm currently using fedora 11.
Why didn't you create a user with uid=33 ?

First, I connect to my private network with openvpn , but this is outside this scope.

Under root ,I have just executed this sequence of commands.
Lines beginning with ... are just comments.

[root@BE506745 etc]adduser  -u 33 -g 33 mybook
... User mybook is created with uid=33
... Group tape already existed with gid= 33
[root@BE506745 etc]passwd mybook
... setup password for mybook
[root@BE506745 etc]# ls -l /mnt/mbw
total 4
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 oct.  30 21:26 home
... so, no priviledge for user mybook
[root@BE506745 etc]# mount -t cifs -o username=xxx //mybookworld/home /mnt/mbw/home
...  I'm accessing share name 'home' without any other parameter.
... mybookworld IP Address is in /etc/hosts
[root@BE506745 etc]# ls -l /mnt/mbw
total 0
drwx------. 54 mybook tape 0 déc.   4 10:54 home
... owner is changed !

from my current user, I'm logging on with user mybook

[xxx@BE506745 openvpn]$ su - mybook                 
Mot de passe : 
... prompt for mybook password
[mybook@BE506745 ~]$ cd /mnt/mbw/home
[mybook@BE506745 home]$ mkdir toto
... I have R/W access to this share !
[mybook@BE506745 home]$ ls -l|grep toto
drwxr-xr-x.  2 mybook tape      0 déc.   4 10:54 toto

and that's all, it works !
