I am having some trouble trying to backup the bandwidth and ip data on the cifs network. I have a dual os machine running windows xp and ubuntu 12.04 both used oftenly. Router device :Asus rt n12 c1 powered by tomato v 1.28 shibby build 120. I assumed sharing to be simpler or may be I am making some silly mistake. Screenshot on ubuntu-> The test folder is shared on ubuntu partition itself.I alo tried with a mounted drive but still doesn't work. The Error code that i get is: Jul 4 20:22:40 unknown user.err kernel: CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -6 Any Ideas? Thank you for any kind of help. Ok one problem is solved..and another appears.... If I use cifs and the router is restarted or turned off I lose all the ip and bw data, obviously I cant keep my pc turned on for 24 hrs. Other method I found was to store it on nvram but then again it was too small to fiddle with. Are there any permanent methods of storing it even when the computer is off like on a cloud?I know i sound too demanding but it would really help in managing the data. Thanks.
