- Subject: trouble accessing samba shares with spaces and/or parentheses
I am experiencing problems with spaces and/or parentheses in samba share names.
Changing the share name is not an option, because they are physical drives, connected to a mac.
The following works fine from a dos box, and also from the gui with 'Map network drive', but fails miserably from the cygwin prompt.
$ net use Q: "$(cygpath -w '//macau/X32 Backup-4(WD)')" "bartels" /user:"bartels"
The command completed successfully.
$ ls q:/
ls: cannot access q:/: Input/output error
This is not a question of privileges or configuration: other shares with vanilla names work fine.
The mac logs do not immediately reveal any clues.
Considering that the dos box and the gui have access, I am inclined to blame cygwin.
