Hi , 

I have French CIFS server. 

If I try to map a share from any windows machine with non-ascii (UTF-8, french characters are part of password) password, it is successful. 

But If I try from linux machine, it fails. 

mount -t cifs //MACHINE/DatasetFIGS_ùÉÀÊÚÎÏŒÄÑ£₣€  /tmp/rahul -o user=ùù,password=ùù,domain=eKKDr
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

Does CIFS supports non-ascii password?
