I'm trying to map a network drive running on a windows server..
I tried using the Connect to Server GUI but didn't get anywhere so I tried mounting it in the terminal but have had little success.
basically here are the details of the server I am trying to connect to and what I have tried: (in fstab)
SERVER=10.26.136.12 SHARE=8279 MOUNTPOINT=/home/jacobian/mystuff FS_TYPE=cifs SMB_CREDENTIALS=/home/jacobian/.smbcredentials
when I try to mount using
sudo mount -t cifs //10.26.136.12/8279 /home/jacobian/mystuff -o credentials=/home/jacobian/.smbcredentials
I get Mount error(13) permission denied.
My credentials are correct because when I log into a windows machine and type \10.26.136.12\8279 and use [myusername]@[domain] [mypassword] it connects and works correctly.
Any help with what I am doing wrong is greatly appreciated.
I am trying to convert my work computer over to ubuntu and this is what makes or breaks it.
