View Full Version : [ubuntu] hardy mount remote password protected smb share

July 6th, 2008, 01:03 AM
I have tried smbclient in a terminal, and I have access to the share

#smbclient //server-name/disk3 -R<myuserid>

works fine, but not in the GUI, and that is more than hard to be without.
How do I do this from the GUI? ON 6.06 LTS server this works fine.
What is the trick in hardy desktop edition?

Either :

Places -> Network -> navigate to share

Places -> Connect to Server -> enter ip/server name

Open Nautilus ( Places -> Home) enter smb://server/share in the navigation bar ("Location : ")

Then enter user and pw

I can mount smb shares, but all files are read only when using the GUI tools. how can I change that? if I use smbclient from a terminal, I can delete files or create new.

ok, I have learned some more.
When I connect to the server, my files are created as nobody and the
the group is wheel. (BSD server), but all windows clients gets correct
owner and file permissions. If I mouunt with smbclient I am my self again, and giving my password all is fine. No password when using nautilus.

I hope some one can help me solve this.
