I have a bunch of public shares (no username, no password) hosted on a Windows 7 Ultimate box on my network From CentOS 5.8, I can mount them manually just fine using this: Code: mount -t cifs //atlanta/binaries /resources/atlanta_binaries/ -o user=guest,password="" If I try to make the same thing happen in /etc/fstab, I change the syntax to this Code: //atlanta/binaries /resources/atlanta_binaries guest,_netdev,rw 0 0 In this mode, all I see is: Code: mount error 13 = Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs) Like I mentioned, this works when I mount manually, so I know I can ping the host by name and I can access the shares. I just need to figure out how to do it with fstab since I have about five others shares I _also_ need to access this way. I've spent quite a bit of time today twing to get this sorted out and now I'm just frustrated. Am I missing something obvious? I've hit just about every hit in the google searches and while they have good information, none have helped me.
