    Problem with SAMBA

    Hi all,
    I have Ubuntu Server 8.04 (with Desktop environment)

    I have installed SAMBA n SMBCLIENT and SMBFS
    I made a folder and added at smb.conf

    [I]
    comment = I disk
    path = /var/i
    guest ok = yes
    browseable = yes
    read list = @IREAL
    write list = @IREAL
    read only = no
    create mask = 0775
    directory mask = 0775


    This works fine for other computers with windows XP on the network.

    Now I want to mount for an UBUNTU Desktop 8.04 this folder
    and i type

    sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=ireal //192.168.0.10/var/i /mnt/i
    and I get an Error 8 no such device or address

    note that at the my places section under Network smb: i can see the Ubuntu server 8.04 under the IREAL workgroup but i can not open it or see any of its contents

    how can i fix this?

    The link you providd doesn't work
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    Re: Problem with SAMBA

    I fixed it I think its a bug that ubuntu samba has. computer name cannot be the same as for the workgroup name. I had workgroup IREAL and Host name IREAL (in windows XP I could double click on the IREAL workgroup and then dble click on IERAL computer and view its contents but from the Ubuntu desktop under smb://ireal/ (which was the workgroup) a double click on Ireal pc had as a result the same path
