RASPBERRY PI – Accessing a windows share SMB

I was getting this error on Raspberry PI

mount error(95): Operation not supported
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

this was the fix for me

sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.x.x/share ~/share -o username=bob,vers=2.1

vers = SMB protocol version. Allowed values are:
· 1.0 – The classic CIFS/SMBv1 protocol. This is the default.
· 2.0 – The SMBv2.002 protocol. This was initially introduced in Windows Vista Service Pack 1, and Windows Server 2008. Note that the initial release version of Windows Vista spoke a slightly different dialect (2.000) that is not supported.
· 2.1 – The SMBv2.1 protocol that was introduced in Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008R2.
· 3.0 – The SMBv3.0 protocol that was introduced in Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.
