Input/output error when mounting drive on router

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.

I too missed a point when accessing the share of my FRITZ!Box 7530 AX. As a reminder I added the following to /etc/fstab:

erlangen:~ # grep cifs /etc/fstab 
//                      /              cifs   noauto,username=mistel        0  0
erlangen:~ # mount /
Password for mistel@//
