    I guess here is as good a forum as anywhere to ask this question.

    I have a Win10 host machine. This hosts 2 separate VMs - a Win7 and a Linux Mint VM.
    The Linux Mint VM is relatively new; I am migrating from an Kubuntu set-up which broke itself so badly that I gave up hope of ever being able to rectify it. One thing that did work just fine, though, was mounting Samba shares. Not so with my new Mint install.

    I can browse the network and mount via Nemo, however when trying to mount by command line, I get the following error:

    The command line I'm issuing (in a root terminal) is this:

    I have set up a user "mint" on the Win10 server, and am able use these credentials when mounting via nemo, but the command line just doesn't like it.
