    Samba share issue


    Hi.
    im using the following command to map (1) a network drive (2) a folder on a shared pc

    mount -t smbfs -o username=myname //server/share$ /mnt/Brennand$
    mount -t smbfs -o username=myname //computer/share /mnt/DDS


    this works fine, but i cannot add or delete items from these shares, i get an error msg that "access is denied"

    Has any one any idea on how i can change this so i have full control of these share??

    Any Help appreaciated...

    ??? What are your folder permissions? Start from the basic stuff up and let us know what the deal is.

    Did you try the cifs protocol instead?

    Something like
    Code:
    mount -t cifs -o username=myname //server/share$ /mnt/Brennand$
    That did for me. I had the same issues as yours with smbfs

    No problemo. It's a good idea to cifs anyway, as the smbfs is now officially unmaintained in the Linux kernel:
    http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhl-b.../msg00649.html

    You can get all the info with:
    Code:
    man mount.cifs
    CIFS stands for Common Internet File System:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cifs

    The cifs still depends on the smbfs package to work. (Which of course you have installed, otherwise it wouldn't work.)
