1: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.0.11/Dropbox, 2: missing codepage or helper program, or other error 3: (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might 4: need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program) 5: In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try 6: dmesg | tail or so
Execute dmesg | tail will return the following result:
1: [ 5537.959706] CIFS VFS: Connecting to DFS root not implemented yet 2: [ 5537.959815] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22
To solve this, simply apt-get install cifs-utils. After that run the same command again and you should be able to mount the network shared folder.
To permanently mount the shared folders, go to /etc/fstab, and add the following line:
1: //server-name/shared /mnt/shared cifs defaults,_netdev,credentials=/home/user/.smbcredentials 0 0
_netdev parameter is being explained at the last section of this documentation, which in general mean connect only when network is available:
credentials and /home/user/.smbcredentials is a file created to store the username and password for the remote login, so that we don't put these sensitive info at risk because the /etc/fstab can be viewed by every users on the system. DO NOT forget to set the file permission for the .smbcredentials:
1: chmod 600 /home/user/.smbcredentials
Now enjoy working with your network shares!
