smb: Use the correct error code if opening the file was denied #4095


Copy link

I was puzzled by the error code i got when trying to download a protected file over smb:

curl   -u "kodi:$KODI_PW" -v  smb://localhost/kodi/notreadable.txt
curl: (78) Remote file not found

While tshark reports:

tshark -i lo -Y smb
   16 0.008405497          ::1 → ::1          SMB 189 NT Create AndX Request, Path: notreadable.txt
   18 0.008770106          ::1 → ::1          SMB 125 NT Create AndX Response, Error: Access denied

With this commit:

./src/curl   -u "kodi:$KODI_PW" -v  smb://localhost/kodi/notreadable.txt
curl: (9) Access denied to remote resource

This seems very reasonable, and match how we handle other similar errors. It would be nice if our testserver could simulate these types of errors, but that's for another PR.
