    Can't write to Samba File Share


    I've mounted a NTFS based network drive on my suse linux box by issuing the following command in fstab

    //LanDisk/disk /home/craig/LanDisk smbfs username=craig,password=hello,fmask=000,dmask=000 0 0

    It mounts the drive without any problems, but I'm unable to write to it (only have read access).

    I've read a bunch of threads pointing to the fmask and dmask options which I've tried setting to 000 and 777 to no avail.

    I'm new to Linux - what are the things that I need to look at to gain write access to the network drive? The username and password specified give me write access when logging in on a Windows box with access to the drive.

    Many thanks!

    you can try to mount it manually with this command line to see what happen

    mount -t smbfs //LanDisk/disk /home/craig/LanDisk -o username=craig

    Be sure that the folder you mount also exist...
