Hi guys,

I Hope im not totaly wrong here, but I have a serious problem with CIFS

mounting a share with mount.cifs give the following errors:
n the terminal:

mount -t cifs // /mnt/home/ -o
mount error 22 = Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

in var/log/messages:
Nov 12 09:39:53 lightning kernel: CIFS VFS: Send error in SessSetup = -13
Nov 12 09:39:53 lightning kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return
code = -13

And watching the login process with ethereal give:

Protocol Info
SMB Session Setup AndX Request,User:MEDIT\steffen
SMB Session Setup AndX Response,Error: STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

in details:
NT Status: STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE (0x000006d)

Whenever I use
mount -t smbfs ... it works

can anyone tell me, what the error codes are all about / where I can
find them. And what the problem is.

To me it looks like cifs does use a different authetification sheme and
perhaps needs additional attention for that (e.g. registration of the
client ??)
but I'm not sure on that.

regards / mfg
