I've come across many threads on Apple, but haven't found a solution that works for me. I understand that the Samba has been removed from OS X, and Apple has developed their own version. I remember trying connecting to the Samba drive when I first upgraded to Lion, and it didn't work so I gave up. But now I need it. Back in Snow Leopard, I used to write
smb://URL/username. I didn't have to enter an IP address, but rather a URL to the network drive followed by my username, and it used to work perfectly. It's a URL because this network drive is hosted on campus at my university. I now receive the following error:
Check the server name or IP address, and then try again. If you continue to have problems, contact your system administrator.
As far as I know, nothing has changed on this network drive side. I am able to mount this drive on the Windows computer easily.
In the Console, I get the following error, which is the same if I try to mount the network drive through terminal:
Key 'smb_neg' defined before section
Not sure what that means.
Anybody know an appropriate solution? What about SMBUp? Is it safe to install and remove?
