[ubuntu] permission denied on mount

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I get a permission denied error when attempting to mount a shared file from a server. It was setup with guest access ticked so am not sure what is wrong. When the password prompt appears I just press return for blank: Code: usb@usb:~$ sudo mount -t smbfs // /mnt/Videos -o username=guest Password: mount error(13): Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) usb@usb:~$ cd /mnt usb@usb:/mnt$ ls -l total 4 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Sep 30 23:15 Videos usb@usb:/mnt$ usb@usb:/mnt$ smbclient -L -Uguest Enter guest's password: (Hardware)
