I am fairly new to linux Administration for forgive me if I say anything that sounds crazy or if this question has been asked before. I did a search on the StackExchange and Unix & Linux site but could not find a helpful solution.
I have a RHEL 6 server that I just hardened using the CIS Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Benchmark v1.3.0
I need to move files from a Win8 machine to the RHEL 6 Server.
I have performed the following as root:
Installed samba and cifs Util
I created the directory /mnt/winshare
I performed chmod 755 /mnt/winshare drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Jun 9 12:43 winshare
I created a share on the win8 box. Permissions for share & folder are set to for Everyone-Full (I know this isn't a best practice but trying to get this to work)
I have run the following command:
mount -t cifs -o username="/rhel /mnt/winshare
with these results:
Password: mount error(13): Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
Not sure where I am going wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
