Connecting to Shared Windows Directory
 
I used to have a doc that showed me how to do thisl, but I can't locate it, and I never bothered to learnt he mechanics behind the command so now, I can't remember it.

I have shared file on my Win2K machine that is shared. It's connected to my Linux machine by means of a Linksys regular 10/100 router.

Can someone please share the command for my linux machine to connect to the windows machine.

I've set up my mount point for the windows share as

root/mnt/windows

Is the samba server runnign autmomatically, or do I need to restart that too?

Thanks in advance for any assistance...

Niall..

You can use smbmount to mount a windows share.
Code:

smbmount //myserver/myshare /mnt/myshare
You can also automatically mount the share at system startup by adding the following syntax in /etc/fstab
Code:

//myserver/myshare /mnt/myshare smbfs username=myUserName,password=myPassword,user,uid=LinuxUser,gid=LinuxGroup 0 0

i believe the preffered method is:
mout -t smbfs //myserver/myshare /mnt/myshare

both will work just the same though. :)

and if you want an excellent gui for surfing / mounting samba shares, then try out xfsamba
