I'm exploring the (unknown to me) mysteries of SAMBA. I really know very little about the M$ side of things, so I'm pretty confused at the moment. Ultimately I plan on having a SAMBA share mounted automatically at boot time, so I'm working up to this a little at a time.
Currently I'm able to mount the share manually using the following command: mount_smbfs -I 188.8.131.52 //[EMAIL PROTECTED]/samba /hmx After which I'm prompted for a password. If I enter this password the mount succeeds. In order to make this work from /etc/fstab, obviously I've got to get past the manual password entry. It appears that I should be able to do this using /usr/local/etc/nsmb.conf, right? However, i can't seem to get the syntax on this correct. here's what I've currently got: [DMGOLAN-W2K:SAMBA:SAMBA] password=samba If I do: mount_smbfs -N -I 184.108.40.206 //[EMAIL PROTECTED]/samba /hmx Which should start me down the road, by eliminating the need for manually entering a password, however, I get the following error message: mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = Authentication error Could some kind soul please educate me as to the correct syntax of this config file?
