    trying to mount Windows share with mount -t cifs

    Under FC6 terminal, issue command

    mount -t cifs //192.168.0.104/MYCOMPUTER/C /local/mount -o username=me

    Get password prompt, enter password, and then receive message:

    'mount error 5 = Input/output error'

    Any suggest source of error message?

    Thanks.

    .
    Your windows share looks a bit longwinded and the syntax is wrong. If you've shared a folder called, say, "My Documents"on the Windows host and used a share name of, say, "MyDocs", then mount it at, say, directory /home/me/WinDocs/ thus:

    sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.104/MyDocs /home/me/WinDocs -o username=<mywinusername> , password=<mywinpassword>
