Hi everyone, new to puppy and more importantly linux.

I am having issue trying to access a NAS drive, it's a buffalo linkstation, i can see the linkstation and its shares in both pnethood and in LinNeighborhood but when ever i try to mount on of the shares it errors, does the same in rxvt.

the error in pnethood is
Quote:
the server may be refusing you access to the share or your password may be incorrect.


The error in linneighborhood is
Quote:
can't get etc/mtab~lock filesmbmnt failed:1

under that line there are a number of lines that start with init_conv, those same lines appear in rxvt also.

I have absolutly no idea what to try next, i have already been through thte wiki and the begineers index, none of the threads under the share heading helped much.

Would anyone be kind enough to point out what i'm doing wrong Very Happy

There has been an issue about such a situation not too long ago.
Use the puppysearch link in my sig and look for NAS.

You might also like to post your puppy version, and try putting in something (anything) for a username, if the shares are configured to not need a username and password.

thanks for the help so far guys, i found the link you suggested beem but have had no joy with it, the shares just don't want to mount. I also tried slax to see if i could get the connection to work, no joy either so i don't think it's puppy, more of an issue with the linkstation nas i am using. The puppy version is 4.3.1.

I have got it to connect using ftp. Seeing as I only need the connection for music / file access an ftp connection is as good as i'll need Very Happy

If ftp works look out for curlftpfs and the file sharing in the menu(if its still there)..this will give you transparent access via rox with streaming ability.
(unless you have already discovered that one)

Also, a new gui has been created to replace pnethood http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=378170#378170
Please try it and report if it doesn't work... the more testing it gets the better it can be.
