I've got a NAS that is setup with CIFS and open guest access. I mounted it in fstab with the following line

// /media/freenasbox cifs guest,rw,**noperm**,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

which appears to work great. I've got read/write access.

However, I start up Transmission and try to download to /media/freenasbox and it appears to successfully download a file for a few seconds, then gives me

Error: Permission Denied

Also, when I try to create a folder/file in /media/freenasbox , Nautilus shows it with a padlock over it, but I can still delete it.

Can anyone tell me what's going on?
