    Is anyone using CIFS to store bandwidth information in Vista? I had it working when I used XP Pro, but have had difficulty getting Tomato to mount UNC (\\\Downloads). I've made the folder sharable to everyone but it still won't mount.

    Just wondered if this was a Vista thing since some Google searches indicated things might have changed for CIFS under Vista.

    not a bug but a feature :biggrin:
    Vista has the file sharing protocol changed and added encryption to it samba don't support it.

    I noticed that too.
    I was testing Vista Ultimate x64 a few days ago, and Tomato would not mount the CIFS with the folder shared and all permissions were given.

    Thanks for the replies. One thing I did notice is I can manually save a backup of the bandwidth logs (tomato_rstats_0014bf204295) to my harddrives without any problems. Hopefully Jon can figure something out ... :)

    this is not Jon's problem turn off the encryption on windows file sharing
    the encryption algorithm is probably patent protected and no support will be available.

    Encryption (EFS) is already off to begin with, so I doubt that is the problem.

    the problem is Vista's NTLMv2, move it to LM & NTLM.
    you can type Vista and samba in Google to see for yourself this will be resolved only after samba will support NTLMv2 natively and then the cifs module could be integrated to Tomato.

    Finally resolved this ... the solution was to make certain NAT Loopback was enabled in the Tomato firmware (v1.15). :biggrin: Once that was done it recognized my shares on my local drives.

    Jon has this listed in his FAQ.
