mount error(13): permission denied

leave a comment »

Most of people got this Permission Denied access when mounting a
Windows Shared folder

following mounting ->

usually : mount -t cifs //<MachineName>/<Shared Folder> /mnt/Shared -o username=<username>,password=<password>
give you error 13.

correct : mount -t cifs //<MachineName>/<SharedFolder> /mnt/Shared -o username=<DomainName>/<username>,password=<password>

Yes! the only difference is “domain name:<DomainName>” is missing. In case of No Domain try to put your <MachineName> there.
cifs does not locate domain itself (I guess).
