permanently mounting a SMB folder on fstab
 
Hi guys,

I added on fstab //server/share /mount_point smbfs username=user,password=pass 0 0 however my system doesn't mount the drive automatically then I tried doing it on the terminal with: mount -t cifs //server/share -o username=user,password=pass /mount_point and that works.
I also tried adding the above command on fstab but it doesn't work.

any suggestions?
thanks!

Instead of smbfs try putting cifs
