Broken NAS connection

Tue May 05, 2015 12:10 pm

I have several SD cards and tend to use each one for a specific program. Each one has a copy of an executable file "./nas" in the pi folder which when run as "sudo ./nas" connects to my NAS drive on my network.
The format is:-

Code: Select all

mount -t cifs -o guest // /home/pi/nasdrive
I recently updated (apt-get update and apt-get upgrade) one of the cards and now when I run "./nas" I get an error "mount error(13): Permission denied". The file still executes correctly on the cards that haven't been updated recently.
I apologise if this has already been dealt with in the Forum, I have trawled through endless posts and Googles but haven't found an answer. I would be grateful if some kind person could point me in the right direction.

Why not do that NAS mount in /etc/fstab?

Also if your NAS can do NFS (rather than CIFS) you'll find the security stuff is easier.
