smbfs is replaced by cifs and I have one problem with it.
With smbfs, I will
mount -t smbfs -o username=hero,password=zzz //server/folder /mymount
With cifs, I am unable to use //server/folder, i can only use ip
mount -t cifs -o username=hero,password=zzz //192.168.1.1/folder /mymount
I am able to smbclient it. But cifs does not take in //server, only IP.
It will give me this error:
mount error: could not find target server. TCP name server/folder not found No ip address specified and hostname not found
Is it possible to use //server instead of using IP address?
Oh ya, I am using openSUSE 10.3
