#462 RH 7.2 can't mount smbfs but 6.2 can?


I have webmin .095 on two servers in a four server
network. The two webmin servers run RH 6.2 and RH 7.2
with my other two servers running NT 4.0. I have tried
over and over to mount a NT share onto the RH 7.2
server but webmin just timesout after 3 mins or so
however the 6.2 server can mount that same share with
no problems in seconds.

All users, shares and mounts being the same, only
difference is the OS 7.2 vs. 6.2

    I just found out about this bug in my own system.. It is
    caused by doing a mount without supplying a password,
    which causes the mount command to prompt for a password
    even if none is actually required. The solution is to just
    enter a dummy username and password ..

    This will be fixed properly in the next webmin release.
