How can I configure autofs/automount so that every single user has full access to an auto-mounted CIFS share?

More information

This is what I currently have configured:


/mnt    /etc/auto.htpc  --ghost


htpc -fstype=cifs,username=content,password=content ://

It works perfectly fine, provided the user is root.

I've tried adding uid=fred,guid=fred but that just ends up allowing the "fred" user read/write access, all other users get "Permission denied".

I've also tried adding umask=000 but then only root has access.
