I am trying to mount a share with a Username with a @ in it.
The man pages all say that you use the following form:
//user at host/share
My School only has documentation for Windows on setting up the Network Shares. In all
the windows docs they always use the form username at carroll.edu -- ie pquerna at carroll.edu
mount_smbfs -I saints //PQuerna at carroll.edu@server/username$ /mnt/carroll/xdrive
mount_smbfs: server name 'carroll.edu at server' too long
I tried it without the @carroll.edu, in the hope it might work...
mount_smbfs -I saints //PQuerna at server/username$ /mnt/carroll/xdrive
mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = Authentication error
It Prompts for my password, and then fails, because its the wrong user.
I also tried adding quotes around the username, escaping(\) the @, but nothing seemed to
I looked around google for abit, but it doesn't seem to even use symbols when i search for
somthing, so i couldn't find jack about this via my normal euphoric rescue on google.
Any ideas before i get the source code out and hardcode some stuff?
