I have installed Samba and CIFS and all that, followed a bunch of tutorials, but still I can't access a share in the separate Windows 7 machine. Before I could access a share in Ubuntu from Windows, but although now I can't for whatever reason; the error of the attempt to mount the Windows share is the same: 13, asking for credentials (the computer with Windows is off now, but I can add the exact error message later).
/etc/fstab I have:
# ... (help info) ... # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # ... (mounting points that don't matter for the question) ... //192.168.1.2/C\:/Users/Public/Documents /srv/Z\:/ cifs user=guest,password=,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0
I also tried options such as
guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8, which, of course, don't work. What user am I supposed to use? (
username=user; my credentials in the Windows and Ubuntu machines do not work, at least with the syntax I tried - similar to this).
Even if this worked it's not actually what I want. I wanted to setup an authentication for any one trying to access the drive (it's currently 777, for the Linux share as well) and put a limit/quota on the share's use (as I see
Z:on Windows, it allows for the entire
C:drive to be filled).
Thank you in advance. I'd be glad if you suggested a way to do this even without the last paragraph.
