I am still suffering the same problems with my DNS323:

* Timestamps change when files written to NAS
* Unable to update files once written to NAS
* Unable to CHOWN or CHMOD files on NAS

My fstab looks like this:-

//    /media/nas    cifs    username=nas-user1,password=nas-user1,uid=502,gid=702,rw,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0770,dir_mode=0770    0    0
The UID and GID exist on both my NAS and Ubuntu machine.

NAS permissions restrict access to nas-user1.

I've tried options "noperm", "nounix" in fstab and "client lanman auth=yes" in smb.conf; all with no joy. Think I've exhausted the internet - been searching for weeks

All I want is to be able to use the DNS323 as an external (network) drive; am I asking too much - is anyone else havng these problems; does anyone have their DNS323 configured where they're able to do the things I can't?

All works fine from a Windows laptop; would hate to have to use Windows more
