You can also use fmask and dmask to set permissions... # /usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/smbmount //maxxsrv/maxxess /mnt/smbmnt -o username=jason,password=jason,gid=501,uid=500,fmask=664,dmask=755 > B.T.W.

I tried quoting "Staff > Directories" and that didn;t work either. I have been at this for over 2 > hours now and still no joy. Any suggestions? You can't mount ..maxxsrv/Staff Directories/Jason since it's not a share, it's a subdirectory of a share. Perhaps you can create the mount to the share, and then create a soft link to the subdirectory you want to use ?
