Description Debian samba package maintainers (PUBLIC MAILING LIST) 2007-06-22 12:55:24 UTC
Hello,

(sorry I'm not sure if this report should go to the cifsvfs bugzilla "product")

the mount.cifs says:

       ip=arg
          sets the destination host or IP address.

but if you use this option with a hostname you get the following error:

# mount -t cifs -o ip=127.0.0.1,username=noel //tralllallallaa/test /mnt/samba/
Password:
# df
...
//tralllallallaa/test
                       5382836   5326232     56604  99% /mnt/samba
# umount /mnt/samba/
# mount -t cifs -o ip=localhost,username=noel //tralllallallaa/test /mnt/samba/
Password:
mount error 22 = Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)

thx.
