This is the basic
Code:
# mount.cifs //SERVERIP/shareddirectory /CLIENT/mount/point -o domain=somedomain,rw,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid="$USER"
in my case I type this in terminal

Code:
# mount.cifs //10.0.0.8/Downloads /home/user1/Downloads -o domain=workgroup,rw,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid="$USER"
Depending on what distro you are using you will have to download some packages.
Good luck to you

Please don't use text speak. I doubt anyone can decipher what your last question is.

The file mode is the permissiond to use. Such as rw-r----- or 0640 in octal form, which gives the owner read/write access. See the chmod man page for more info. fmask used to be used instead. It masks out permissions you don't want allowed.

UID is the user ID of the owner. GID is the ID of the group. You can use the user name instead.

A graphical client such as dokphin may allow you to enter your credentials. This is handy if you prefer to work in a GUI.

Please read the mount.cifs, fstab and mount man pages. Look at using the uid=...,cred=...,user,noauto options together in an fstab entry. They will allow you to mount the share as a regular user without having to remember and retype all the options.

If the server is a samba server,the user needs permissions on the directory being shared. The samba user should exist on the server. Look at the smbpasswd command to add users on the server and set the password. Remember to check that the firewall opens the ports you need for sharing and browsing.
