    problem accessing Windows XP as a client with Samba

    Linux networking friends,

    I have a computer running SUSE Linux 10.1. At work all the computers on
    the network, except this one, are running either Windows 2000 Pro or
    Windows 2000 Server. The computers are physically connected through a
    router. I am an administrator on all the Windows computers and have no
    problem whatsoever mounting administrative shares such as C$ using smbmnt.

    Using the same Linux computer at home, I try to access a computer
    running Windows XP Pro, on which I'm also an administrator. I have
    turned off simple file sharing on the Windows XP computer. The computers
    are also connected through a router. I can't access using smbclient, and
    I can't mount using smbmnt. The Windows XP computer has the name of
    APPLE, and when I try

    smbclient -L APPLE

    or

    smbclient -L apple

    I get the messages

    4611: Connection to apple failed
    connection to apple failed.

    Any suggestions?

    Code:
    su -c "mount -t smbfs -u username -p password //server/sharepoint //client/mountpoint"
    or
    Code:
    su -c "mount -t cifs -u username -p password //server/sharepoint //client/mountpoint"
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    no luck

    Thanks for your response.

    When I try either of your suggestions, I see the following:

    mount: invalid option -- u
    Usage: mount -V : print version
    mount -h : print this help
    mount : list mounted filesystems
    mount -l : idem, including volume labels
    So far the informational part. Next the mounting.
    The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'.
    Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted.
    mount -a [-t|-O] ... : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab
    mount device : mount device at the known place
    mount directory : mount known device here
    mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command
    Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts
    a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device.
    One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere:
    mount --bind olddir newdir
    or move a subtree:
    mount --move olddir newdir
    A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom,
    or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid .
    Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p passwdfd].
    For many more details, say man 8 mount .

    Code:
    mount -t smbfs //servername/sharename /mountdirectory -o username=username,password=password
