I am using mount.cifs in CentOS to connect to a windows share. I have the credentials for the cifs share in a separate file on the linux box. That share mounts fine using the credentials....I can read and write. What I want to do is change the permissions on the mount point (/mnt/share1) so that only root and users in the root group can access the share. Right now any user can get into the share. Is there an easy way to do this? chown does not work....

Have a look at this page:

http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/manpages/mount.cifs.8.html

mount -t cifs //machine/share /mnt/mountpoint -ouser=windowsuser,password=windowspassword,uid=localowner,gid=localgroup,file_mode=770,dir_mode=770

Will cause localowner and localgroup to be able to read and write to it, but no-one else.
