From RPi /etc/samba/smb.conf:

    comment=Sona Orico1 drive
    read only=no
    create mask=0777
    directory mask=0777
    force create mode=0777
    force directory mode=0777
    valid users=@users
    force group=users

The network is on the Servalan workgroup. The RPi is This samba share shows up via Windows 10 listed as "Sona (Samba 4.5.16-Debian)" with perfect read/write control.

I have a Pivos Aios machine which runs BusyBox v1.1.3 (2011.09.09-05:41+0000). I am able to use the mount command to mount the shared hard disk on my Asus router ( just fine. I am not able to mount the RPi samba share from the Aios box.

I can mount the Asus drive with the following mount command:

mount -t cifs // -o ro,domain=Servalan,username=Aios,password=aiospass /tmp/nfs/Media 

The following mount command does not work with the RPi samba share:

mount -t cifs // -o ro,domain=Servalan,username=cavalli,password=sambapw /tmp/nfs/Orico1

It yields the error message: mount:

Mounting // on /tmp/nfs/Orico1 failed: Permission denied

Pinging the Asus and RPi work perfectly from the Aios box. Both mount point directories exist and have identical permissions. Both samba shares work perfectly from Windows with the correct account/samba passwords.

My RPi has been the stalwart central point for all main LAN file server functions, but this one part doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions for a command to read-only mount the data drive with my media on my Aios would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance! :D
