Hello. I have spent the better part of last week trying to get Samba3 to work on my FreeBSD-server. Now I have 3.0.6 but the connectivity to Suse-clients is not OK.

The setup is a FBSD server with nfs-mounted homedirectories. I want to re-export these to Suse-clients via Samba and want to be able to use hard and softlinks in from the client.

Between Suse-server and Suse-client I can do this and between Suse-client and Solaris. But I find no way between BSD server and BSD client nor between BSD server and Suse-client.

The FBSD way of mounting to samba seems to be the mount_smbfs command and not samba's own smbmount. I get a "ln: Operation not supported" and I hope this is ONLY due to the client?

Is there any way to force compilation of smbmount from ports? It is not built per default and a "make bin/smbmount" errs with "no such file" for mntent.h asm/types.h and linux/smb_fs.h. Which is a bit odd as I imagined that the sources should be portable?

Is this - shudder - a lack in the server-samba-3.0.6 on this platform?

Any ideas om this? Or enlightenments...
