Updating smbfs-mount needs remount ?

Hi everybody,

I'm fighting with the following Problem since a few days:

I haveing a binaryfile, mounted on a Linux-Box as smbfs-client to a Win2000-Server-Share.

I could read and write to that file on my local mountpoint.

But if the Server writes into that file, I'm at least able to see this changes on server-side after remounting that share again.

My local Changes ont the mountpoint are sightable at the moment i did them (with khexedit) .

 	mount -tsmbfs -ousername=XX,workgroup=XXX,fmask=777,dmask=777,sync,rw
         //WIN200/files /home/mn/files

doesn't work, nevertheless with "sync".
Even a sync();  or a fsync(fileno((FILE*)hFile));
doesn't help.

It seems, that there is a buffer between that mountpoit and the shared file, which ist earliest updatet after my remount.

Linux: SuSE 7.0
uname -r : 2.2.16-SMP

Any suggestions?

Thank you a lot in advance
