HI Michael, sorry yes the rest of your message did answer my questions,
I guess I didn't read carefully enough, I am not on many lists where the
convention is to do in line replying, I prefer top posting, but I guess
that's me being lazy lol.
Anyway, to clear up the confusion.
What happened was this, originally when I wrote to the list a few days
ago I was running a distro based off ubuntu 10.04,
obviously the version of samba it was pointing me two was 3.4, I
actually didn't know individual distro versions pointed at different
packages, I just assumed they all used the same package versions.
so when I was using the distro based off ubuntu 10.4, that's when I went
hunting around for a repository that would install samba 3.5.
Anyway, after writing to the list I then discovered that there was a new
version of my particular distro out, based off ubuntu 11.04, which I
downloaded and installed.
so now I am running samba 3.5 from the correct repository.
I am no longer getting a permission denied message when I try and mount
it gives me some error message about the wrong fs type, but I don't
think samba is even trying to connect to the share, as it returns this
I have tried switching off my firewall but this hasn't helped.
I have shared the folders I want to share on my windows 7 host machine,
and I have also added an entry for it to my /etc/hosts file.
I know that I am probably not providing any useful information to solve
this problem, if someone could tell me how to pull up any logs that
might give us a clue about why my share isn't working I will be happy to
provide copies to the list.
