Hi,

I have a BTHome Hub router with a USB HDD hanging of it working like a NAD. This is formated to Fat32 and I can access it from any Windows machine in the home without problem.

I am trying to access it from my Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook but when I try to map to it I get an error. The latest error is 'cli_rpc_pipe_open_noauth: rpc_pipe_bind for pipe \srvsvc failed with error NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL.

Its been a while since I fooled around with mapping from Linux to Windows shares. Can anyone give me a little guidance or point me at a how to guide ?

thanks in advance

Phree

Hi :)

Can you test it this way:

Write in nautilus address bar this:

smb://yourrouterip/yourshare

and see if you can access it that way.

See ya...

If I bring up network neighbourhood on the Ubuntu Netbook, I can see the workgroup and the BTHUB hanging below it. I right click and choose the 'mount manually' option. Enter the share name, the ip address and the workgroup name in the dialogue box.

It returned the following error,

' the share xxxxx could not be mounted and under details I get the following:

'mount.cifs:permission denied: no match for /home/phree/smbk4/xxxxx/xxx found in /etc/fstab

not sure what this means

Thanks for the response.

I have read the links and others besides and it seems they all require the etc/fstab file to be edited. I have taken a look on machine and that doesnt apper to exist. Do I create one from scratch or should it have been created when I installed something??

appologies for the dumb question, I just dont want to screw things up.
