mounting windows share with "use simple file sharing" enabled


hi ..
i used to mount my lan pcs shares "hosted on win xp boxes" with the usual command
mount -t cifs -o username=administartor,password=123456 //192.168.3.33/c$ /mnt/share1

that was ok when windows machines had "use simple file sharing disabled"

but now how can i mount drives without having that option disabled ? i have the usernames running on that machines and the passwords .. am in need for that coz u know disabling that option will require alot of work to secuer windows then !

thanx in advanced

Samba should do the trick for this as far as I know. Google it. I believe it's installed by default with most distributions. Try this command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=123456 //192/168.3.33/c$ /mnt/share1

Even if you're using simple file sharing, you still have to set up a folder (or drive, not recommended) to share on your windows computer. Once you get that set up, then use the command I posted earlier and you should be in good shape.

The c$ indicates that you're pointing toward the C drive on your Windows computer. If that's not set up to share, then it's not going to connect.
