    Hi Thomas - Thanks for you ideas. When trying CIFS - fs type cifs not supported by kernel I have no real experience with LINUX so I m walking mostly blind.

      Hi Thomas -

      Thanks for you ideas.

      When trying CIFS - "fs type cifs not supported by kernel"

      I have no real experience with LINUX so I'm walking mostly blind.
      Can you tell me how / where to access the log file you mentioned?

      Please forgive this old windows user (smile).

        you should really try the following:

        try mounting your smb share as you did, and after it failed, run "dmesg"
        to see what went wrong.

        You can also post the relevant parts of the dmesg output here.

        one note: if you wont give the URI in a form of
        \\myserver\myshare, you have to type:

        \\\\myserver\\myshare
        in bash. bash interprets \ as an escape character.

          you should really try the following:

          try mounting your smb share as you did, and after it failed, run "dmesg"
          to see what went wrong.

          You can also post the relevant parts of the dmesg output here.

          one note: if you wont give the URI in a form of
          \\myserver\myshare, you have to type:

          \\\\myserver\ \myshare

            although i have no clue about this (tm), a quick search at google turned
            out that you might be missing an helper program.

            this program is called mount.smbfs or smbmount.

            steps:

            a) look if mount.smbfs or smbmount are available. do this
            by typing mount.smbfs and/or smbmount in the console. if you get an
            error message like "command not found", these progs aren't there. you
            need to get them. if the programs are found otoh, they'll display some
            usage information.

            b) if you have only the smbmount program, use smbmount as mount command.

            c) if you don't have these programs, you need to find them.

            d) another topic by google said that this might also be an compatibility
            problem between Windows XP and the smbfs driver, in which case you'd
            have to get the cifs driver for your box.

              I guess I'm at a loss until I can figure out how to get / install what you mentioned.
               
              Thanks for your efforts.

              although i have no clue about this (tm), a quick search at google turned
              out that you might be missing an helper program.

              this program is called mount.smbfs or smbmount.

              steps:

              a) look if mount.smbfs or smbmount are available. do this
              by typing mount.smbfs and/or smbmount in the console. if you get an
              error message like "command not found", these progs aren't there. you
              need to get them. if the programs are found otoh, they'll display some
              usage information.

              b) if you have only the smbmount program, use smbmount as mount command.

              c) if you don't have these programs, you need to find them.

              d) another topic by google said that this might also be an compatibility
              problem between Windows XP and the smbfs driver, in which case you'd
              have to get the cifs driver for your box.

              Hi, you might have to start smbclient (if I remember correctly). If the distro you are using doesn t use smb then you might have to install it. Try going on

                which is based on Debian.

                  Thank you for your below.  It really proved have pure windows I am because I understood so very little of what you were saying.  Thanks for the attempt tho.  I'll have to get myself some basic understanding unfotunately.
                   
                  This group has allowed me to get the device to a point where it is a Upnp for me and its great.
                   
                  I'm just hoping I can sort out this mapping to a windows box.

                        Hi Andre,
                         
                        It is a Linkstation PPC.
                         
                        I have managed to realize that
                         
                        a) samba isn't installed
                         
                        b) if downloaded it and am trying to get it installed.
                         
                        Any help in this regard would be great.
                         
                        At this point I have extracted the "latest" from samba.org and when I run the ./configure command that should create the makefile I receive:
                         
                        bash-2.05a# ./configure

                          Sorry I didn't notice this thread until it got way long, and I haven't read all the replies
                          to it so excuse me if I miss a few things. I'll try to give my 2 cents worth:

                          1) That old LS Linux 2.4 kernel does NOT support CIFS, but it does support smbfs
                          which is it's predecessor which works more like Windows98 filesharing.

                          2) I'm not completely up on what is going on with MS-Windows these days, but I've
                          always been able to connect to shares from Linux using smbfs. This includes Domain
                          controllers running Server-2003.

                          3) One of many things that might be missing is an encrypted password generated in a
                          file on the LS to match against what the Windows machine is going to want for that
                          share for a given user. This is unless you have it configured as a simple "open"
                          share. To create a password, you normally use the command:

                          smbpasswd -a <username>

                          you even need this if there is no password for that user. (No password is still
                          considered a password choice). In this case use the command:

                          smbpasswd -a -n <username>

                          If you only want to change an existing password, remove the "-a".

                          Now this assumes you HAVE the smbpasswd on the LS. It this OpenLink or FreeLink? I
                          never read the thread enough to find out.

                          4) You also might have something set wrong in the rest of the samba (Windows files
                          sharing suite for Linux) configuration. The raw config file should be
                          at /etc/samba/smb.conf, which is a simple text file you could post here for community
                          inspection. This is where it should be for Freelink, on OpenLink, who knows, the "real"
                          one is probably buried over in the web interface area somewhere. (I thew out the
                          original OS on my LS soon after I bought it.)

                          5) To test some things, try connecting to one of the Linkstations own shares! At least
                          there should be no permissions or strange Windows problems with this. Then work
                          foreward from there.

                          6) Yes, you DO need "smbmount", which is ususally "syn-linked" to "mount.smbfs" for
                          the mount program to find it. You can do this manually if it isn't there:

                          ln -s /usr/bin/smbmount /sbin/mount.smbfs

                          7) Yes you can use the "smbclient" program too, but I'm guessing you want a
                          permanent mount so this would only be useful in testing.

                          8) All of these things are part of the the whole "samba" package, all of which may or
                          may not be fully installed on your Linkstation. This would include the manual pages
                          for this stuff too. If the later is missing you can either consult www.samba.org, or you
                          could even look at the manual pages for what I have on my LS that I have publically
                          available on my LS server. Here might be some interesting links:

                          http://wartstew.homelinux.net/cgi-bin/man/man2html
                          http://wartstew.homelinux.net/cgi-bin/man/man2html?smbmount+8

                          You probably get the idea.

                          I even have a bunch of general Samba Documentation in this area:

                            you should really try the following:

                            try mounting your smb share as you did, and after it failed, run "dmesg"
                            to see what went wrong.

                            You can also post the relevant parts of the dmesg output here.

                            one note: if you wont give the URI in a form of
                            \\myserver\myshare, you have to type:

                            \\\\myserver\ \myshare
                            in bash. bash interprets \ as an escape character.
