I am trying using samba to connect to a folder I own on a windows server. I connect by typing:
Which works for every server where I either connect directly to my folder (i.e.
smb://the_windows_server/my_folder) or when I have read privileges on all the directories in the chain to my folder. In the present instance
I do not have read privileges for
the_windows_server/home/. The upshot is that OSX mounts
the_windows_server/home, which has a nice 'not accessible' icon, and I stuck outside the folder I own and I want access to.
I am on OS X 10.8.4, samba provided by the OS. I know I could do something to the windows server, but I do not manage it and I know it will be a painful and drawn out process to sort out if I try the 'ask the IT guys to fix the windows server' approach. I would like to explore possible solutions on my OS X side of the equation.
