Hallo, gforgcc,

>> take out the space between the , and password=abc and the extra / on
>> //home/abc

> when i tried mount -t cifs "//" /mnt -o
> username=abc,password=abc
> it is giving the following error
> mount error 5 = Input/Output error
> Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page  (e.g man mount.cifs )

Does the workgroup fit?
Has the username or the password any special character?

Viele Gruesse!
