    Problem with Samba.


    Hello, I get this error when trying to access a file on my Windows 2000 server with Samba:

    Code:
    File does not exist: smb://server/Files/Applications
    It happens when I try to access 'smb://server/Files' and all the folders appear as files.

    Help please.

    Could be a permissions thing on the windows server, try using smbmount to mount the exported windows folder directly to your filesystem - that way you can specify username and password.

    smb://server/Files/Applications
    Are you putting this into the location bar in Konqueror or something? Have you tried the smbclient directly?

    Or you could try mounting cifs. I've had trouble with W2k3 Server and smbfs. The problem could also exist with W2k.

    If none of these work, I'd be inclinded to agree with Roxoff that it's probably a permissions thing on the server.

    Give this a try:

    Code:
    mount -t cifs -o user=<username on the share>,uid=<local username>,gid=<local group>,file_mode=0755,dir_mode=0755 //server/share /mountpoint
    cifs is a newer incarnation of smb. It seems to work better in some situations.

    If you get this to work let me know. I'm currently having a problem where I mount my Windows share, set proper permissions, but then for some reason am denied write acess.
