I'm trying to mount a samba network share on an Ubuntu 14.04 using cifs.
On the server, I've got the share running. I can already map it as a drive in Windows. The share has a username and password.
On the ubuntu machine, i've got
/etc/samba/user where the credentials are saved. I also have the directory where I would mount the share
I have this on /etc/fstab
//192.168.1.1/sharename /mounthere cifs credentials=/etc/samba/user 0 0
When I do
sudo mount -a I get this error:
mount error(112): Host is down
The host is not down. I've got it running on Windows. I've double checked the credentials and possible firewall issues.
I also have cifs-utils installed.
Can anyboby point me to the right direction.
