Dear Professional,

i have tried to mount the shares which is on windows2000 server with the name "smh" and the server name is "WS10". I have used a command

smbmount //ws10/smh /software/smhsmb

then it asked for the password. i have used the root password, windows administrator password and have checked the permission of the share. everything is ok. I also used empty password but couldn't mount the share

Windows 2000 machine running on WORKGROUP . do i need to run the linux in WORKGROUP? from where i can make the REDHAT linux configure to run in workgroup

regards

Personally to mount windows shares, I always use LinNeighborhood (http://www.bnro.de/~schmidjo/), sure it doesn't look that good (they really should convert it to gtk2).

It is able to browse your entire network, and you can mount shares with specific workgroup/domain users.  Once mounted you can even export those mounted shares to scripts you can afterwards run from bash.

try this

mount -t smbfs -o username=thenameondestinationbox,password=passwordondestinationbox //ws10/smh /software/smhsmb

I have found that somtimes if smbmount doesn't work, mount -t smbfs does. make sure u use the name and pass of the destination computer.

LinNeighborhood is nothing more than a (handy) GUI for samba, that's all.

If you aren't familiar with smbclient-fiddling from command line (like me), the "export mount" really comes in handy, it simply creates a bash file you can later on use manually.
(that's why I mention it :) )
