Networking help....


Ok, I'm stuck...

Win2003 server & 2 Ubuntu linux (smb) clients.

I cannot mount my win shares via smbfs, I get the ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess Access Denied (and I have tried every possible syntax)

ex: sudo mount -t smbfs //Server/Share /mnt/mntPoint -o username=blah,password=blah

However, I can use the network browse launcher with the same crudentials and I get out to my server just fine. The real problem is that I can't open anything from the server. All jpgs report "Unrecognized Image Format", mp3's will not load, etc. If I copy any of these files to my/home/linuxuser path they all run fine.

I'm assuming that perhaps I need to launch these applets as root in order to run anything from server (is this right?).

How do I do this? I have tried sudo nautulis but that does not launch the network browse applet.

My server is my lifeline and this is killing me. I don't seem to remember having any problems using Libranet last year mounting my windows 2003 shares......

Thanks,
T3

odd, but why not just do what I did and see if it works.
Code:
su
smbmount //compy/share /mount/some/place -o username=blah,password=blah

As stated above....

Code:
root@LISALAPTOP:/home/linuxuser# smbmount //192.168.1.1/Files /mnt/Files -o username=linuxuser,password=D$$Hack1
2063: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed
However, I can use the exact same crudentials with the GNOME applet and access my shares (but again I can't open anything on the share since I cannot figure out how to use that tool as root).

when you use the gnome applet are you being prompted for a username and password when you attempt to connect to the win2k3 share?

Yea, several times. I was actually just able to log in locally as root and that did not resolve anything. Since I cannot mount my shares I can't run anything on my server. Everything says "unrecognized File Type" unless I copy it over to my local machine....

I'm at a total loss here

Ok, it turns out that if I specify my password via the command line, my server refuses the connection with an ERRDOS ERRnoaccess exception. However, if I send the same command minus the password, I'm prompted for the domain password and it mounts with no problems.

I also tried the crudentials file and it will not allow this either.

I really need to mount these shares in /etc/fstab onboot... any ideas anyone?

Anyone??

Has anyone been able to get a linux machine to map a Windows 2003 Server share while specifying the user's password in the smbmount syntax?

My mounting only works if I enter the command with no pasword and then I'm prompted for the windows user password...

The inability to map windows shares programmatically eliminates the possibility of using Linux as a client OS in my business since my users will have to have their shares mapped on logon.

Thanks..

This turned out to be special characters in the password that needed to be esacped.
