I am trying to mount directory located on local network. I am using :

mount -t cifs -o username=user //192.168.0.106/shared /home/user/point

And I get following error :

mount: /home/user/point: cannot mount //192.168.0.106/shared read-only.

It is shared via Samba. Thanks for any answers.

    This must be the most confusing error ever.
