I've been attempting to mount a network server on my computer. I can do it through Finder, but this is inconvenient since I can only connect with one username at a time. I read that mounting via Terminal would allow me to connect with multiple usernames at the same time. I found this post: How can I mount an SMB share from the command line? where the command to mount is
mount_smbfs //user@SERVER/folder ./mntpoint
but whether I do that or
mount -t smbfs instead of
mount_smbfs I get the same error:
mount_smbfs: mount error: [mountpoint path]: Input/output error
Someone even mentioned getting the same error in that post I linked to above, but no one answered him.
Edit: For the sake of being complete, here's my actual input and output (with the username and password replaced). I even created a new directory /Volumes/testShare to test it with.
Jamess-MacBook-Pro:Volumes magavendon$ mount -t smbfs //[user]:[password]@172.25.206.80 /Volumes/testShare mount_smbfs: mount error: /Volumes/testShare: Input/output error
And the mount_smbfs command:
Jamess-MacBook-Pro:Volumes magavendon$ mount_smbfs //[user]:[password]@172.25.206.80 /Volumes/testShare mount_smbfs: mount error: /Volumes/testShare: Input/output error
