[SOLVED] mounting windows network share: connection timed out
I'm trying to mount a windows share network drive (on a university's server) using Ubuntu 10.04. I'd like to make it a permanent mount, so I've added to etc/fstab, but am having problems with the following error:
Here's what I've done so far:
mount error(110): Connection timed out
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
My /etc/fstab has:
I have smbfs installed. I've created mnt/shared. Then from
//files.school.edu/shared /mnt/shared cifs noauto,user,username=username,uid=user,gid=group,mode=700,filemode=600 0 0
I type in my password, wait awhile, then get the "Connection timed out" error message above.
sudo mount /mnt/shared
I've solved a couple of problems already to get here, but my ignorance has kept me from getting further. Any ideas? I'll be more than happy to post some output - let me know what I should be looking at. Thanks.
