I have an external HDD attached to my Raspberry Pi running Raspbmc. I can connect to it from my 12.04 desktop (after help from 2F4U here).
I've tried the same process to connect to the share from my laptop running 13.04, so from /etc/fstab:
Username and password are in the file /home/ah/.smbcredentials. When I try to mount, I get the following error:
//raspbmc/seagate /media/rpSeagate cifs credentials=/home/ah/.smbcredentials,uid=ah,gid=users,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
I can ping the host (raspbmc) fine from the lappy. When I try access the share through nautilus, I get:
ah@ah-ThinkPad-X121e:~$ sudo mount -a
mount error(112): Host is down
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Unable to access location
Failed to mount Windows share: Connection timed out
- Installing winbind, cifs-utils, samba, samba-common, python-glade2, system-config-samba
- Editing /etc/nsswitch.conf with --> hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] wins dns mdns4
- Editing /etc/samba/smb.conf with --> name resolve order = wins bcast lmhosts host and also tried them in this order: lmhosts host wins bcast
- Using the ip address instead of the raspbmc, i.e.
//192.168.1.64/seagate /media/rpSeagate cifs credentials=/home/ah/.smbcredentials,uid=ah,gid=users,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0
