Hi,

I want to write a shell script that will automatically connect to a windows share server and then do some stuff with the files there each time I log in. I have a few problems with this.

I can connect to the server with the GUI by going to Places->Connect to Server. With this, I can connect to the server and then manipulate the files through the file browser GUI thing. However, I can't figure out how to connect to the server or, once connected, manipulate files via the shell. When I try to connect with this command: "/usr/bin/smbclient //ntserver-quota/<directory>", all I get is "session setup failed: NT STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE".

The distribution is Scientific Linux.

Thanks, I appreciate your help.

As root try mounting the share via
mount -t cifs //server_name/share_name /mnt/mountpoint

Be sure to use the actual server and share name. Also be sure to create a mount point if needed.

Thanks for the reply. That won't work, though, because I don't have root access.

Here is a howto with an example showing the correct syntax.

I already read that guide. Any of the commands in it just give the same error message that I mentioned, or a similar one.
