user mode mount question - Linux / Unix Administration

Hi, Is there a solution to mount a winnt network share in user mode that is not to use standard 'mount -t smbfs' command. The problem is that I have no permission to use standard 'mount -t smbfs'. Or maybe there is a plugin for 'mc' that can be used with winnt share as if it was mounted fs. Thanks George...

    Default user mode mount question

    Hi,

    Is there a solution to mount a winnt network share in user mode
    that is not to use standard 'mount -t smbfs' command.

    The problem is that I have no permission to use standard 'mount -t smbfs'.

    Or maybe there is a plugin for 'mc' that can be used with winnt share as if
    it was mounted fs.

    Thanks
    George

    Generally, the vfs.usermount sysctl allows ordinary users to mount file
    systems.

    However, this currently doesn't work with smbfs. See this thread on the
    freebsd-current mailing list:

    [url]http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-current/2004-June/029583.html[/url]

    So, for the time being I'd suggest using sudo (ports/security/sudo).
