In other distro's I have used typically I could use LinNeighborhood or similar to map or mount a network drive, so far in Fedora I have been unable to do so. I can see the server (ClarkConnect v2.0) fine and can move files to and from the share. What I would like to do is have a mounted share in say my home directory so that I can play my MP3's in XMMS without having to copy them first to the computer.
I'm not too sure how to handle this graphically, but you can use the command like to do this.
First install the samba-client package then you can issue the following command as root:
mount -t smbfs -o username=tridge,password=foobar //fjall/test /data/test
That will mount a remote samba share as a part of your filesystem. You could also try a LinNeighborhood package off of rpmfind.net but one of the ones I tried from there didn't work for me(wouldn't properly mount a filesystem).
I'd love to hear what other Fedora users are using though, as I'd like a nice browsable mounting tool for end users.
In Fedora Core 1:
I obtain this error message mounting a shared resource.
mount -t smbfs -o username=myuser,password=mypassword,ro //shared/server /var/www/html/calidad/s_calidad
3954: Connection to snmulp02 failed
SMB connection failed
This command works well in Red Hat 8. I think it is the same bug of RH9:
