I can read from a remote server using
sudo mount //Bor****ges/imgdisk4 /home/ilan/remoteDisks/biMnt -o user=,pass=
There is something similar for the Mac, which also can't write, but I want to concentrate on Linux for the moment. I thought perhaps the server itself isn't giving me write permission, so I used a Windows machine. Under Windows I have no problems writing, so the server itself isn't blocking me.
In an answer in superuser I found this
sudo mount -o umask=0,uid=nobody,gid=nobody /dev/something /mnt/somewhere
I tried adding -o umask=0,user=,pass=, but it complained that the syntax was incorrect. I went to the man page for mount and found the correct syntax was -w, which is the default. If it is the default I should have always been able to write. In any case, I removed umask=0 and added -w. The result, not surprisingly, was that I still can't write to the network drive.
Can anyone tell me where the problem lies and what I need to do to solve it?
