I'm currently using the Linux Linus Lite distribution on my Acer Aspire One netbook.
Unfortunately, I'm suffering a problem connecting to a network attached storage drive that is wired to my LAN. I have no problem connecting to this particular device through Windows terminals and the device itself works perfectly. The particular drive in question is a Freecom FSG-3.
However, as the file manager in Linpus Lite does not appear to support local networking as a native function, I have tried (unsuccessfully) various methods to overcome this issue.
In particular, I have created a folder in the root directory called 'NetFolder.' Following this I right-clicked on this folder and picked the 'Open Terminal Here' option. I then typed the command line:
I. First attempt I tried: sudo mount -t cifs -o username=[MY USERNAME],password=[MY PASSWORD] //10.0.0.3/fsg NetFolder
II. Second attempt I tried: sudo mount -t cifs -o username=[MY USERNAME],password=[MY PASSWORD] //10.0.0.3 NetFolder
III. Third attempt I tried: sudo mount -t cifs -o //10.0.0.3/fsg NetFolder
IV. Fourth attempt I tried: sudo mount -t cifs -o //10.0.0.3 NetFolder
NB. The username and password I have listed are the credentials I use to access this NAS through my Windows explorer (it allows me to view all the files on the drive and does not give access to specific FTP user accounts). In addition, the 'fsg' following the '10.0.0.3' is the network name for this device (the way it appears is you look for the device on a network management utility).
After trying them all of the above combinations, the Terminal application has displayed a number of error messages and I cannot see the contents of the NAS (which I should do if the attempt to add this drive is successful).
For example, the error message I received after trying statement I. above was "mount error: can not change directory into mount target NetFolder."
Has anybody got any idea of what might be the problem?
