Hi guys, I’m trying to figure out how to do this right … without success
My problem, is: I have a machine running on windows 10, with some shared folder “sharedfolder” and I gave to “myNetUser” the permission to read and write. Now I’m trying to mount my shared folder on my OpenSuse machine but I have no permission to write on that folder, when I use:
sudo mount -o username=myNetUser,password=thePassword //192.168.0.19/sharedfolder /mnt/sharedfolder
In my linux machine the user is “linuxUser” … if that’s a problem (as it’s different from “myNetUser”)
The “strange thing” is that if I use dolphin and I go to network > samba network and I put 192.168.0.19/sharedfolder I can access the windows machine folder and write on it … but how can I mount it? and how to auto mount the folder at OS startup?
Explicitly specify the smb protocol in your mount command
Verify the Workgroup/Domain name is specified correctly (ie careful with the camel case), if the Client’s Hostname doesn’t naturally pass that, then specify in the username, et name@domain. Your client’s SAMBA config may be providing this automatically.
Share logs on the Server can usually provide a clue exactly what the error is.
Well, as with any command you use, you should at least check what it is used for mainly and maybe even in more detail by reading:
But the main question is not if you now understand what we advised you to do, but if you did it and if it helped. And maybe even show what you got, so we can offer advise on what you see and how to interprete it.
