Sharing Files between MacOS and OpenSUSE

Posted 11-06-2010 at 10:10 PM by Focused4Success

I like to keep all of my unique data and configuration scripts for my VMs on the native file system vs. mixing them in with the OS. I keep my user files under /home/username on my Mac. I access these files by mounting this filesystem as /mnt/username under OpenSUSE using CIFS. I also use a shared NIC vs. a bridged NIC to maintain security.
