'[OT]: mounting a W2K drive/folder in linux'

Hello,

I'm trying to access a w2k machine on a lan. What am I doing wrong here?

this is what I've entered:

# mount -t smbfs -o
username=duane,password=******,ip=192,168,1,109,re,uid=500,gip=500
//rick/c-drive/duane /home/duane/rick

This is what I get in return: tree connect failed:ERRDOS -
ERRnosuchshare (You specified an invalid share name)

invalid share name - on which end?  everything is correct as far as I
can tell.  The 'rick' folder in created in /home/duane.  Do I need
something in the /mnt dir?

Any help is appreciated!!

Duane

You should use periods rather than commas in the IP address.

Also, you mount a share, not a directory under a share.
So you should be using //rick/c-drive instead.

that was it.  I only needed //rick/c-drive.

Thanks (again) for the help.  The list always comes thru!

Are you sure the share name is really 'c-drive/duane' ? (right click on
the item you want to share and check - it should say exactly this). The
share name is exactly what you put there - no drive prefix, no nothing.
