Solution to “cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22″

When trying to mount my network drive from campus at home I received the following message in dmesg:

CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -22

Well it turns out that I needed to have the smbfs package installed. This quickly solved my problem.

sudo apt-get install smbfs
