I have samba setup on a fedora 13 machine, and I use it to share with my xbmc client in the family room. When I set this up there no password or anything was required I merely entered in paths such as:
smb://<host>/<share> and all worked.
Now on my ubuntu 10.04 machine when I try to access the same hosts, for example through smbmount though I receive an error.
smbmount //media/Music ~/Music/ # media is in my /etc/hosts and resolves to # correct IP address for the machine
I receive error: operation not permitted after pressing enter when it prompts for password.
Here is my entry from /etc/samba/smb.conf:
