You could easily achieve this using mount_smbfs (which is, actually, a wrapper for mount -t smbfs) : mount_smbfs //user@SERVER/folder ./mntpoint Optionally, add the workgroup : mount_smbfs -W workgroup //user@SERVER/folder ./mntpoint You could, of course, change the ./mntpoint (for something like /Volumes/smb). After doing this, simply go to ...

File sharing is available on the client under System Preferences>Sharing>File Sharing. You can then select what to share. Once you've done that click the options button. And select the third option shown in the image below.

You should take a look at mount’s help: man mount Upon closer inspection you’ll see that the filesystem’s type is: mount -t smbfs //username:password@MACHINENAME/SHARENAME /SomeLocalFolderOfChoice Password (and theoretically username) are optional. The result of the above command will be no output (if all went ok), but a cd /SomeLocalFolderOfChoice, ...

Is the file you're trying to copy using a resource fork? If you're dealing with .DS_Store file issues run the following command in Terminal: defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true If you're having issues with resource forks on Snow Leopard you may need to change your settings for the streams setting in smb.conf on the ...

Windows 7 has extra network security options, and one of them sets its discoverability. By default in Windows 7, when you connect to a new network you are prompted for what type of network it should be: Public, Work, or Home. These profiles set up the firewall and security options when on that network; I can't off the top of my head list all the things they ...

Setup a new volume on your Nexenta/OS box for your backup and set it to share out as an iSCSI LUN. Then use one of several iSCSI initiators for MacOS X to attach the backup volume on your back. On your mac, format the volume as HFS+. Now you can use CCC or rsync, etc. to do your backups.

Since it is advertising its presence on the network with Bonjour, you should be able to simply ping it: ping -c 1 nas-smb.local

The simple act of clicking the "File Sharing" check box will allow the following things to happen. Any user account can connect to the machine and access their own home folder, as well as the public folders on any other user account. Any administrator users can access the boot disk. The list of shared folders in the preference pane is for fine-tuning ...

Suspiciously named Msftguy has written a program that fakes the required AFP features for unsupported volumes. AFAIK this is currently the only way to use non-AFP volumes with 10.7 lion. Use at your own risk! Details Executable

I finally found the answer on the DD-WRT forums and it's annoyingly simple but I would never have guessed it in a million years. The username has to be entered in UPPER CASE. So while smb://share@192.168.1.1/public didn't work, smb://SHARE@192.168.1.1/public did! Just wish I hadn't spent a day trying to get find that out!

There are actually two messages you're referring to: "This operation can't be completed because the item is in use" and "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items." If you see the first one - I sometimes get that message too. Quite often this can be resolved by running: sudo lsof | grep ...

I found that I needed to unlock the security keychain: Mac-mini:~ gravelld$ security unlock-keychain password to unlock default: Mac-mini:~ gravelld$ codesign -s "Developer ID Application: My Name" -f /path/to/appfile/mounted/elsewhere.app /path/to/appfile/mounted/elsewhere.app: replacing existing signature Mac-mini:~ gravelld$ Success! Hope this helps ...

Have you looked into using Carbon Copy Cloner? I use this to a manual bit-for-bit backup of my SSD to a network drive once a month or so and it works flawlessly. I know it does incremental backups, and I've had no trouble dumping my drive over gigabit ethernet.

Not the exact answer to your question, but you can rsync resource forks too. Here are really nice articles about: http://www.afp548.com/article.php?story=20050219192044818 http://www.kremalicious.com/2008/06/ubuntu-as-mac-file-server-and-time-machine-volume/ http://quesera.com/reynhout/misc/rsync+hfsmode/ ps: do you use solaris or freebsd?

I believe what you want to do is to make the linux machine announce itself using mDNS. But then it's not a Mac question anymore, but a Linux question.

In order to mount as "guest" you need to use another command: mount_smbfs mount_smbfs -N //guest@server/share /some/existing/path The "-N" is "don't ask for password" (type man mount_smbfs for more info). As for the second part of how to create it on the fly (the path) I believe that it's not possible. The mount command doesn't create it on the fly and ...

I'm not aware of a way to make them show in the list, but you could just type smb://servername/sharename$ in that box, if you know the name of the share. In that initial Connect to Server window, you can also click the + icon to bookmark it in the list below the text field. That way, you don't have to type it every time. Alternately, if you have a bunch of ...

I had this issue as well and found sleepwatcher to do what I need.

This is a known issue, and has no current hotfix or resolution. The problem is in the samba implementation. The only thing I can think of doing is writing a script to umount your samba just before sleep, and mounting right after sleep. (Nobody has done this yet) Most educated source on the problem I could find: ...

defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true Will get rid of the DS files. Anything else you might have to do by hand.

Mac OS X never used Samba's SMB client. Mac OS X has always used an SMB client implementation based on Boris Popov's smbfs for FreeBSD. I don't think that's changing in Lion, so its relation to /etc/auto_master probably isn't changing. As for the SMB server side, Samba is surely being replaced with a different SMB server software package.

Because there is no normally-accessible local filesystem on an iOS device, an app that "supports SMB" doesn't tell us enough. Because you can't simply copy files from a SMB share onto the iOS device. There are plenty of apps that support SMB shares, three I can think of off the top of my head (at least as far as I recall) are: Goodreader, OPlayer, and Air ...

Additionally to the OPlayer app suggested by @Jason Salaz I've found several other apps that can connect to Windows smb shares: Cloud Connect Pro $14.99 FileBrowser $3.99 Files Connect $3.99 NetPortal $2.39 ezShare Pro $15.99 Unfortunately I couldn't find any free apps.

Yep! Go to 'Users & Groups' in System Preferences Select the 'Guest User' Tick 'Allow guests to connect to shared folders' Done :)

In your configuration, you have unix extensions = no which is fine, but that is why symbolic links on the server are showing up as folders and not aliases. In this mode the server resolves the symbolic links and the client never sees them. If the client tries to create a symbolic link, the server actually generates an alias file, not a host-OS symbolic link. ...

Actually Apple has added a new implementation of SMB as it is now the default filing protocol for file sharing (actually SMB2) http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57588593-263/os-x-mavericks-switches-to-smb2-networking/ While I don't recognize the error you are getting, try replacing SMB in your connection string with CIFS. EG: cifs://server/share That ...

It's easy to hook up dropbox--not quite the same as you are asking but supported on pc/mac/iphone/ipad/android/linux/... and really does a great job of syncing your files together. I haven't seen any other apps that would allow you to accomplish the goal you are after, but you will find some that will let you stream media from a certain type of media ...

It should just be as easy as accessing the location as follows smb://username:password@ip.of.the.server/optional/path
