Samba- on "put file x" says file does not exist?


Hi,
My CentOS box is connected to a WinXP Home box directly via crossover cable in a simple file sharing network. Network is tested to connect properly, as both machines can ping themselves and each other. I use Samba to connect to shares on the WinXP box. Although after the command "smbclient -L nameOfWinBox" I get the exact list of shares that I set up for Windows to share, when I try to change directory to a shared folder:
Code:
smb: \> cd Share For Linux
I get the following message:
Code:
cd \My\: NT_STATUS_ONJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND
And this is not the only issue. There are shares whose names don't contain spaces (if space in the name is an issue) and I get to them correctly via the cd command. The "ls" command works as expected and lists contents fo the share correctly. But when I try to copy a file from that folder to my CentOS box:
Code:
smb: \ShareForLinux\> put DaFile.txt
I get an error message saying that the file doesn't exist although it was previously listed with ls command.
How to fix this?

Spaces ARE an issue, try escaping them with back-slashes
cd Share\ For\ Linux
Or quoting the whole lot
cd "Share For Linux"

And I think the command you want to use is get, not put.


Cheers,
Tink

That's because the directions differ.... ?

Centos -> Windows: put
Centos <- Windows: get

If there's a file called DaFile.txt in your current working
directory on the centos machine you PUT it. If it's on the
windows share, and you want to have it on the centos machine
you GET it.


Cheers,
Tink
