i'm talking of this article : http://linuxgazette.net/106/orr.html
I'm sorry by advance if the question looks silly.
"The main thing I can't get to work is smbfs. Our shared files are kept
on an NT server. My colleague who has Gentoo can do it using Konqueror
or this command:
mount -t smbfs //SERVER/directory /mnt/smb -o
... but for me although I connect without error, "ls /mnt/smb" says
permission denied, and "ls /mnt" doesn't even show "smb" while it's
mounted. I tried several variations of the network directory and
username, with and without the fmask/dmask, but nothing has worked. So I
still have to switch to Windows to save my backups to the network, and
to run a Java applet that won't run in Firefox or Galeon."
From your sentence ' and "ls /mnt" doesn't even show "smb" while ", can
I ask if the directory /mnt/smb does exists ?
It must be created before the mount.
Sorry again !
