Smb: Errdos 2215


I have just setup a windows share and trying to mount it under RHEL4. However, "mount -t smbfs", smbmount both the commands are throwing the following error:

Session setup failed: ERRDOS - 2215
SMB connection failed.

I tried disabling the Digitally sign communication settings under Windows XP, however, it still gives the same error.

Any idea.

Have you tried specifying a user and workgroup when mounting.

smbmount //myserver/share /mnt/misc -o username=myself,workgroup=myworkgroup

Thanks alot, adding workgrup did the work.

I still remember earlier we only use to supply the username and it used to work. However, Thanks again for your help!
