    Network shares mount problems

    Not sure if this is the right place, but here goes;

    I have a Netgear ReadyNAS nv+. The main shared folder as either cifs or nfs is //readynas01/media

    The address of the NAS is 192.168.1.16

    When I "Browse Networks" from nautilus on a Ubuntu based (12.04) PC, I can connect to the readynas just fine on

    smb://readynas01.local/media/
    or
    smb://192.168.1.16/media/
    or
    smb://readynas01/media/
    all work.

    However, I have had no luck trying to mount the readynas from fstab as in

    //readynas01/media/ /mymountpoint cifs 0 0

    findsmb gives me
    Code:
    192.168.1.16    READYNAS01    +[MSHOME] [Unix] [Samba 3.5.15]

    dmesg | tail gives me

    Code:
    [   30.921006] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -113
    [   30.921011] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -113
    [   43.201413] CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation
    [   43.201489] CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation
    [   43.249404] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -113
    [   43.249409] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -113
    I have the same problem trying to mount from my other linux pcs.

    Macbook and my Windows 7 PC connect OK, of course.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    It seems you have quite similar problem as I had.
    Check my topic: "attempting to mount NAS on Ubuntu server"
    Maybe you can find it usable.

    I was desperately trying to mount nfs shares, and than I finally succeeded but with cifs type of share ...

    The command that solved the problem was:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t NAS_IP_address:/MyNetworkShare /MyMountPoint -o username=MyUsername,password:MyPassword

    I'm a little confused:
    When I "Browse Networks" from nautilus on a Ubuntu based (12.04) PC, I can connect to the readynas just fine on

    smb://readynas01.local/media/
    or
    smb://192.168.1.16/media/
    or
    smb://readynas01/media/
    all work.

    If you are using "smb://..." it's already mounted at /home/your-user-name/.gvfs

    If you have no problems with the mountpoint and just want the share to be mounted at login use Gigolo: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...16&postcount=3

    I have a shared mounted at boot time like this (fstab line):

    Code:
    //10.143.1.34/share /media/share smbfs credentials=/root/.acc 0 0
    Where /root/.acc is where I have my username and password so I can access this share.

    Do you need credentials to access this NAS?

    I never really envision the finish of anything that I start. It's risk that fascinates, the moment of infinite possibility.

    Thanks for those tips. I didn't know about /home/your-user-name/.gvfs

    Not as far as I know. I have lodged a support ticket with Netgear to see if that is the case. However, I wouldn't think credentials are needed because cifs mounts out of the box on my daughter's netbook.

    Because it is samba, you will have to do something different.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
    I thought I had it installed. Alas....

    Anyway, all good.
