Yes, reading back to posts #6 and #7, it was apparent that the samba share was enumerated as “admin”. We could have got here slightly quicker if I’d zoomed in on that a little sooner. Not always easy after a days work. The mount syntax for samba shares is something like
sudo mount //samba_server/samba_share /path/to/mountpoint
along with any other required options.
Anyway, glad to have been of help.
