Because "Windows" does not conform to standards, you have to use mount_smbfs. As far as I understood, it doesn't even matter which file system is on the "Windows" disk. I will give an example. First, set up those in your /etc/fstab (makes things more easy): //administra...@ntws2kxx/a$ /smb/a smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 //administra...@ntws2kxx/c$ /smb/c smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 //administra...@ntws2kxx/d$ /smb/d smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 //administra...@ntws2kxx/e$ /smb/e smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 //administra...@ntws2kxx/f$ /smb/f smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 Then, make /etc/nsmb.conf look like this: [default] workgroup=ARBEITSGRUPPE [NTWS2KXX] addr=192.168.16.3 [NTWS2KXX:Administrator] password= You can then simply issue # mount /smb/c You can check out manpages for: mount_smbfs fstab nsmb.conf Then, I'm sure, how you can add a directory name as you mentioned above (\backups). I think that's possible, too. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
