I am using a backup script to first make a mysql dump file on a linux box and then copy it to a windows network share. This works fine if the network share has a username and password asscociated with it however this new share has no user /password protection and I cant seem to mount this new share on the linux box. Keep getting "permission denied". If I leave out the username / password from the mount.cifs command it defaults to the linux username and prompts for password which never works as it is not set up on the windows share. I dont have access to the Windows server to change this.
Is there a way to mount this new share without username and password?
