I have just bought a readynas and am trying to mount the user home share created on the nas, which gives me some problems. I try with sudo mount -t cifs -o username=far,password=kanto2000 // /home/tove/far

far = share on nas and have also created a folder (far) on my laptop, user name as password is also correct. After running the code, I can see a drive named far, but if i try to open it i get error that i dont have the rights to see the folder ? I am able to do so from my windows7 laptop.? can anyone assist

Can you make sure that your user owns the folder far. Did you maybe create the folder with sudo ? That would make it root owned. –  Mazal Dec 21 '12 at 18:54
