For some reason I can mount my XP Home machine but not my XP
Professional. The mount seems to go ok until I enter the password then
17184: session request ok
17184: session setup ok
17184: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an
invalid share name)
SMB connection failed
smbmount //winpro/lba /mnt/winpro -o guest,uid=lba
works from the command line without entering a password
but not from a script. When the script is used, password is demanded
but is not accepted.
Security is share.
Firewall is disabled on XP Professional since I use a pretty good
gateway firewall. When I get Professional mounting, I'll look into
allowing some ports (udp 139 445 ?).
A similar section of the script accepts the password and loads the Home
computer without issue.
I can access the Professional from smbclient and the password is
accepted without comment.
Is there some difference in how passwords are handled between XP
Professional and Home?
Any ideas what's going wrong?
The Professional machine _used_ to mount
Both the Home and Prof machine use the same user name.
