Mounting public samba share on DD-WRT

After much faffing about and getting samba client error 22s, I felt the need to share this.

I was having problems mounting share VPN-MUSIC on my DD-WRT router at ip address, I had to change the offending line in /etc/fstab to

// /mnt/samba cifs guest,username=nobody,password=,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,nofail,vers=1.0  0  0

The key parameter here is vers=1.0 which will cater for older shares.

I hope this will save someone some time.


I found the same solution as you did!
