Talk:Mount a Remote Drive via SMBFS
I spent the better part of the last 24 hours on this and am questioning if there is an error somewhere in this process using smb.kext/mount_smbfs on ATV1. Did anyone get this working with smb.kext/mount_smbfs on ATV1? Seems I should be able to mount it to Volumes but mount directory disappears on reboot. --markosjal
I'm having some issues. I'm trying to mount a second drive via mount_smbfs (as outlined in this article). Here is what I am getting:
-bash-2.05b$ ls -la total 64 drwx------ 7 frontrow frontrow 238 Oct 3 20:35 . drwxrwxrwx 20 frontrow frontrow 680 Oct 3 20:33 .. -rw------- 1 frontrow frontrow 12292 Oct 3 20:15 .DS_Store -rw-r--r-- 1 frontrow frontrow 0 Feb 26 2002 .localized drwxr-xr-x 2 frontrow frontrow 68 Oct 3 20:35 Current Season drwxr-xr-x 1 frontrow frontrow 16384 Sep 22 19:18 Movies drwxr-xr-x 10 frontrow frontrow 340 Oct 3 20:17 Old TV Shows -bash-2.05b$ mount_smbfs "//frontrow2:email@example.com/frontrow2" /Users/frontrow/Movies/Current\ Season mount_smbfs: can not setup kernel iconv table (default:tolower): syserr = Operation not permitted
Any thoughts on what the error is about?

So previously I was using Sharity to handle my SMB connection. I recently added a second drive, and the free Sharity can only handle one connection at a time, so I am moving to mount_smbfs. My issue is that the machine that I am mounting from sleeps, and when it goes to sleep I loose the SMB connection, and the only way to get my AppleTV to see it again is to reboot it. Sharity seemed to be able to reconnect on the fly. Is there any way, using mount_smbfs to reconnect on the fly to the drive? --kupan787
