  Thank you for your suggestion, but the results are the same on my end:

04:51 providence:/etc/cups> sudo mount.cifs //phoinix/config /mnt/phx-cfg -o
mount error(13): Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

  Client log:

Dec  6 04:52:10 providence kernel: [50131.404712] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed
w/return code = -13

  Nothing in server log. Glad I'm not the only one seeing it. This is a strange
one. Andrew has another curiosity to master now ;-)
