I wanna be able to write to an NTFS drive mounted over SMB.

I've tried following this guide but when I run diskutil info /Volumes/inetpub (inetpub being the name of the drive) I get Could not find disk: /Volumes/inetpub.

I've also tried some 3rd party software but they didn't seem to work.

I'm running Mac OS X 10.8 and the "Get info" window of the drive looks like this.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

As far as your Mac is concerned, that's not an NTFS volume, it's an SMB volume. Macs can write to SMB just fine (as long as the permissions allow writing), so you shouldn't need to do anything special (other than maybe adjusting the permissions on the server).
