Mount a Linux filesystem under windows 7
I have a question that surely has a simple answer, despite what Google says.
I have a windows 7 computer. I want to mount a windows directory on a linux machine and vice versa.
To start on the linux machine.
I am using
Mount -t smbfs -o username=peter,password=bingo //192.168.1.8/video /media/winbox
192.168.1.8 is the IP address of the windows computer, video is the share name of c:\video on the windows computer, /media/winbox is a directory on the linux machine.
I can ping both ways. the username and password are correct. I turned the firewall off on the windows computer.
I am using Knoppix 6.2 booted off a dvd disk.
The error I get is mount error(13): Permission denied.
On windows I am entering \\192.168.1.10\winbox and I get Windows cannot access \\192.168.1.10\winbox Check spelling.
