Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.2.4/multimedia /mnt/freenas/multimedia -o username=graeme,password=your-Mint-password,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777
again ?

I ran the upgrades you suggested, renooted and ran the following command

Code: [Select]
graeme@Linux1 ~ $ sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.2.4/multimedia /mnt/freenas/multimedia -o username=graeme,password=your-Mint-password,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777
[sudo] password for graeme:
mount error(22): Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

As they have obviously changed/broken CIFS in 12.10, I think it's best if I get a Mint 14 LiveUSB and see if I can work it out.

There's a ton of bug reports about this online, seems to be a mixture of the 3.4 kernel, and the latest version of cifs-utils

You busy tomorrow evening ?

From the man pages the pass should be password ;)

Quote
password=arg
    specifies the CIFS password. If this option is not given then the environment variable PASSWD is used. If the password is not specified directly or indirectly via an argument to mount, mount.cifs will prompt for a password, unless the guest option is specified.

    Note that a password which contains the delimiter character (i.e. a comma ',') will fail to be parsed correctly on the command line. However, the same password defined in the PASSWD environment variable or via a credentials file (see below) or entered at the password prompt will be read correctly.

We've tried both pass= and password= .. same error

I did however not ask if his password contains a comma

Emegra .. does your password contain a comma ?

There is no comma it's purely alphanumeric

Quick quiz .. who can spot the difference between these 2 commands -

working -

Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t cifs //linkstation/share /mnt/Linkstation/info -o username=mint,password=mint,iocharset=utf8,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777

broken

Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t cifs //linkstation/share /mnt/Linkstation/info -o username=mint,password=mint,iocharset=utf8,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777

Because I can't .. yet one works, the other fails ???

Emegra .. What happens of you run this:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.2.4/multimedia /mnt/freenas/multimedia -o username=graeme,password=CHANGE_ME,iocharset=utf8,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777
then
Code: [Select]
ls -a /mnt/freenas/multimedia

Obviously, change the CHANGE_ME to your Mint password.
