Difference between smbmount mount.cifs & mount -t
I am wondering what exactly is the difference between:
mount -t smbfs
mount -t cifs
I am asking because a NAS vendor supports 'mount -t smbfs'. Anyway I came across the other choices and would like to know of this is depend on the server (Samba, windows 2000&2003&2008 etc.) and what is exactly important to know about it.
I would say first don't use smbfs
its problems probably won't get fixed.
smbmount I believe is a tool of samba
mount is a system tool
mount.cifs is part of the smbfs package.
I would say mount.cifs and mount -t cifs would be more appropriate.
