    mount problem ''permission deny''


    Alright guys

    I am having a problem mounting some files from a windows server, on a Red Hat EL4 server. I use the nautilus mount and is working fine, however when I try to mount the files using the command line I am getting a permission deny. I tried to mount it from a (RHEL4) server running on vmware and is working fine both ways (nautilus and command line).

    I insert in the command line the following:
    mount -t smbfs -o username=whoever,password=whatever,workgroup=domai n //winserver/common /testmount

    The files are mounted, but when I df I am getting this:
    df: `/common': Permission denied


    any ideas?

    Cheers

    I'm no network expert, but if there's a way to connect as root, well, try it I guess.
    When I find myself burried in errors, Windows Help appears to me; speaking words of wisdom, Reboot!
