I want to use a shared folder for storing the bandwidth logs on a general storage XP box running more or less 24/7. Problem is I just can't get it to work.. the log says " Mar 29 01:59:00 user.err kernel: CIFS VFS: Error connecting to IPv4 socket. Aborting operation Mar 29 01:59:00 user.err kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -145 " I'm assuming the "error connecting to ipv4 socket" means it can't connect to the computer for whichever reason. then the log goes on with recurring " Mar 29 02:05:43 user.err kernel: CIFS VFS: Send error in SessSetup = -13 Mar 29 02:05:43 user.err kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -13 " which repeats every two seconds for a while.. I've allowed the router complete access through the firewall and all, and since others are obviously able to make it work all fine I'm wondering what I'm missing. thanks in advance.
