trouble mounting a Windows drive
OK here is the problem.
As root I mount the shared windows drive;
mount -t smbfs //[IP]/f /mnt/nas -o username=[?],workgroup=[?]
This mounts the drive fine. As root I'm able to browse and edit files on this drive. great.
However, I don't want to access this drive as root. I want to access the drive as a normal user. I can navigate to /mnt/nas and view the directories and files. However, I cannot create or delete any of the files or directories!
I log back in as root and try a chmod 777 /mnt/nas -v
This tells me it has worked.
a ls -l on the other hand tells me it hasn't worked.
How can I allow normal users to edit files on this share?
