On the other hand, I would love to be able to use cifs exclusively, but
I have several network drives ( WD and TrendNet ), and neither brand
will mount via cifs with a credentials file. I have to use smbfs if I
am to access them. No amount of googling has provided me with a clue,
and a thread on this site went nowhere
for as long as Debian supports smbfs, I'll continue to use it. Maybe a
future firmware revision on the drives will correct the problem.
