I cannot seem to get Ubuntu to mount a mac share via SMB or AFP. I've tried the following...


apt-get install afpfs-ng-utils
mount_afp afp://user:[email protected]/share /mnt/share

Error given: "Could not connect, never got a reponse to getstatus, Connection timed out". Which is odd as I can access the share just fine via Mac.


apt-get install cifs-utils
nano /etc/fstab
added the following line "//localip/share /mnt/share cifs username=user,password=pass,iocharset=utf8,sec=nltm 0 0"
mount -a

Error given:

mount error(22): Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

I don't really care which it uses I just want it to work! Am I doing something wrong?
