    I'm having a problem which this guy describes:

    Here is what I'm doing:

    mount -t smbfs //myuser:mypass@mybox/myshare /Users/myuser/Desktop/Storage

    it results in: "mount_smbfs: mount error: /Users/myuser/Desktop/Storage: File exists"

    Or, if I don't have the Storage directory crated it results in: "mount: realpath /Users/myuser/Desktop/Storage: No such file or directory"

    I'm really confused. From what I read, this should be working.

    You need to run the command using sudo.

    sudo mount -t smbfs //myuser:mypass@mybox/myshare /Users/myuser/Desktop/Storage

    this should then work.
