The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5019
mount cifs does not work (permission denied) while mount smbfs works

AFAIK now I should use cifs instead of smbfs -- as a samba client. See for example:
However no matter hard I try to mount samba resources I always get one error -- permission denied, error code 13. Every option for me is valid.
When I lost all hope, I found out the method to install smbfs for my system. I did it, I just changed cifs to smbfs and it worked like a charm.
A bit of technical details -- to mount, I have to make openvpn connection, then I execute:
mount.cifs //samba_server/tmp /mnt/smb -o username=macias
opensuse 10.3, samba-client-3.0.26a-3.ccj1, samba-3.0.26a-3.ccj1, cifs-mount-3.0.26a-3
Is this still an issue that needs to be addressed?
I think we can close it as worksforme.
