View Full Version : FC5:No samba mount with unencrypted password

12th June 2006, 12:35 PM
I have to access a (relatively old) samba server that only accepts
unencrypted passwords. So far no problem using 'mount -t smbfs' with
Fedora Core 4. But now I upgraded to Fedora Core 5 which lacks support
for smbfs resp. smbmount

'mount -t cifs' only supports encrypted passwords. There is an option
'sec' that defaults to 'ntlm' (NTLM password hashing) but cannot be
switched to no encrytion. I can browse the samba file system using
konqueror/nautilus and 'smb://' but I need shell access, too.

Any workarounds?
