CIFS mount to any folder you can read?

Question asked by jager13579 on Jan 5, 2010
I was wondering if it were possible to mount a CIFS share on a folder where you have read access but don't have read access to the parent. For example:

+documentLibary (no read access)
—-+myFolder  (read Access)

I would like to mount directly to myFolder. However, when I am trying to do this, the connection times out. If I temporarily give read access to documentLibrary, it connects. This may be the intended behavior of CIFS but I wanted to see if this was a problem with our install or a limitation of CIFS.

Thanks.
