I try to mount my NAS onto Ubuntu 12.04. This is my situation:
Then I try this
\\PX-EH\ADMIN$ IPC Service (PX-EH)
\\PX-EH\IPC$ IPC Service (PX-EH)
\\PX-EH\disk LAN disk
\\DISKSTATION\IPC$ IPC Service ()
\\DISKSTATION\homes user home
\\DISKSTATION\NetBackup System default shared folder
\\DISKSTATION\Share DiskStation 212
I even tried Diskstation with capitals and with non-capitals, but no success.
$ sudo smbmount //Diskstation/home samba
mount error: could not resolve address for Diskstation: Unknown error
When I do
It seems there are some non-printable odd characters behind 'diskstation'.
$ nmblookup -R -U <<IP-address>> diskstation
querying diskstation on <<IP-address>>
With the PX-EH nas, I have the same problems, so it is not caused by the others side.
I don't want to type an IP-address. I want to use names, that's what they're for.
How can I mount my NAS with its name?
And if I need to add the name to some hosts file, why can I browse the samba drives with Nautilus without such a hosts file?
