[ubuntu] Smbmount

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – peter@peter-desktop:~$ smbmount "\\\\Sylvia\\Documents" "\\home\\peter\\share" This is what I get: mount error: could not resolve address for Sylvia: No address associated with hostname No ip address specified and hostname not found Can anyone tell me why this doesn't work. I have spent all morning Googling and trying different syntax. If I mount the folder in "Places" and look at the properties of a folder in //Sylvia/documents I get smb://sylvia/documents/ as the location. (it is on a win XP with no password) /home/peter/share exists on my Ubuntu (Hardware)
