    Hi I am having a problem setting up a CIFS share from Tomato on to a NAS box (Icybox NAS900). I currently have the CIFS share to a directory share from my PC this directory has no security setup but because Tomato requires a user ID in the CIFS client I put my PC login details in and it works. However I want to swap the directory to my NAS box so I do not have to leave the PC on 24x7 but the NAS box can support passwords on the directory but does not allow a user name to be set I have tried the following but all I ever get is the message of "Mounting...."
    - Set the NAS directory with no password and CIFS client up with "admin" as user which is the NAS boxes web browser admin username and the associated admin password - would not connect...
    - Set the NAS directory with a password and CIFS client up with "admin" as user which is the NAS boxes web browser admin username and the directories password - would not connect...
    Has anybody had similar issues with using NAS? Does anybody have a work round already? Is there any way to not have to put a username and password into Tomato's CIFS client?
    For info I am using Version 1.06 Tomato firmware and the NAS box uses SMB (samba I think) but I have no access to the root of the firmware to config anything differently, browser GUI only allows top level directories to be created/deleted etc and passwords to be set, it's also the latest firmware available. Any ideas appreciated and thanks in advance.

    look at Tomato's log and look for the error number
    error -13 is access denied
    error -1 is no permissions
    could be simpler if you'll use a Linux Boot CD because you have more control and you see the errors "live"
    this is for Linux
    mount -t smbfs -o username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD //PATH TO SHARE /MOUNT POINT
