For two days now I've tried for two days now to get cifs working on a
redhat 9.0 2.4.20 based linux box. I followed the instructions given at
http://de.samba.org/samba/Linux_CIFS_client.html, i.e. compiling
cifs-0.6.8 and mount.cifs rev. 184.108.40.206. I successfully loaded the cifs.o
as a module and following the given examples I tried:
[root at r151-101 cifs]# /sbin/mount.cifs //raid/demo /stud/demo -o
mount error 22 = Invalid argumentRefer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page
This yields the following /var/log/messages block:
Apr 22 21:19:44 r151-101 kernel: CIFS: Unknown mount option ip
Apr 22 21:19:44 r151-101 kernel: CIFS VFS: Error connecting to IPv4
socket. Aborting operation
Apr 22 21:19:44 r151-101 kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return
code = -111
What does Unknown mount option ip mean here?
I also tried various other mount options with same result. Finally I
tried the two older versions of mount.cifs (1.2 and 1.1) with no success.
The samba server is samba-2.2.5-1 with "unix extensions=yes" configured.
I can access this machine via smbclient //raid/demo -U demo.
So maybe the mount.cifs helper is not appropriate? I scanned the samba
mailing list for the past six months without success. Any hints greatly
appreciated! I did not yet receive the samba mailing list confirmation
to my subsription request, so please send me a "cc" if possible.
