    So I have setup a ssh tunnel which connects to a linux server at my house, which I connect to from other networks. I have it setup as well to work on a localhost port so that I can enable socks proxy in system preferences and tunnel my internet traffic through my home network.

    I would like to be able to access samba shares that exist at my house through the SSH tunnel. I have been able to find so threads online about this however if I try using:
    sudo mount -t smbfs //*shareName* /Volumes
    I get the following message 'mount_smbfs: server rejected the connection: Authentication error' despite the info being correct.

    So to summarise, I would like to be able to access SMB shares remotely using a SSH tunnel.

    Thanks in Advance

    Try to mount
    If not working try afp or cifs protocol instead of smb, because Apple likes to do samba on their own way instead of how it should #
