I am havng some problems using the smbmount command. First, I load the SMB driver as follows:

insmod -f /tivonet/modules/smbfs-2.0.1.o 1> /dev/null

This worked with no problems. I then try and mount my Hard Drive on my WinME machine. The machine name is "PIII800" and the mount name is "DDRIVE" and no password (I'm behind a firewall). With the following command, I get this error:

bash-2.02# /tivonet/bin/smbmount //Piii800/DDRIVE /mnt -n
mount error: Invalid argument
Please look at smbmount's manual page for possible reasons

My WinME machine is logged in with username "bblank". I also tried the following command without success.

bash-2.02# /tivonet/bin/smbmount //Piii800/DDRIVE /mnt -n -U bblank
mount error: Invalid argument
Please look at smbmount's manual page for possible reasons

Thanks in advance for your help.

./smbmount /TargetIP/TargetDrive /mnt/ -I TargetIP -U TargetUser -D TargetWorkgroup

Your supply:

TargetIP
TargetDrive
TargetUser
TargetWorkGroup

The system will ask you for a password. I have only tried this with a samba server.

On my tivos I get one shot at smbmount. If the mount fails I have to reboot to get it to work, otherwise even the correct syntax will fail.
