    Networking

    In point of fact networking to a Win2K server but I don't suppose that's relevant in itself.

    I know how to network (using mount) and can make it so that those shares connect at boot but I can't seem to access them (or indeed) run mount at all from my non-root user.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    You just need to change to mount options to allow access to them by non-root users. Post the command showing how you are mounting them now.

    Hi Jim,

    I use a file called SNTFLinux, set as executable containing:

    #! /bin/sh
    mount -t smbfs -o username=<username>,password=<password> //<W2K Server>/<sharename> /mnt/trans
    mount -t smbfs -o username=<username>,password=<password> //<W2K Server>/<sharename> /mnt/mp3

    The file is placed in /etc/init.d/rc5.d.

    Is that what you meant?

    A Solution :-)

    Hi,

    I seem to have a solution (though I don't fully understand it yet):

    mount -t smbfs -o username=ntuser,password=ntpass,uid=lxuser,gid=lxuser,fmask=0775,dmask=0755 //ntserver/ntshare /mnt/lxmountpoint

    That seems to work :-)

    That's the important part.

    That is exactly what you needed to add. Look at the manpage for "mount". It explains what the options do.
