I want to mount some windows shares on Linux workstations in my
office.I am using FC3 and my shares are on Windows XP pro and Windows
I tried this command to mount those shares
mount -t cifs -o username=windowsusename
the samba then asks for the password of the windows user,i gave the
correct password but then Linux returns with an error
mount error 6 = No such device or address
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
The /anotherfolder exists under windows2003/sharename.
I can access the windows2003/sharename by giving this command.
mount -t cifs -o username=windowsusename //windows2003/sharename /mnt/server
but i want to give access to the users only to some folders on which
they have rights not to other folders means only one or 2 subfolders
under /windows2003/sharename and not allowing access to all the
folders under sharename.
I also tried this on Windows XP using the command
mount -t smbfs -o username=windowsusename
but this also gave an error
4858: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an
invalid share name)
SMB connection failed
Whereas i can access the sharename by giving this command
mount -t smbfs -o username=windowsusename //windowsxp/sharename/ /mnt/xp
Please tell me whether this is possible or not.I watn to give access
to some folders to the users not to all the folders .
Thanks & Regards
