file/directory sharing -cross platform


I need to file/directory share with a windows machine running a proprietary application that does not support sockets.

I found this link on-line

Has anyone had any experience with this method or have any advice for or against it?

Thanks

Nothing particularly interesting about mounting a remote windows share. Very very common thing to do.

Chris,

I'm glad that it is so simple for you, could you share some details, I don't find it simple, that is why I'm asking

well you didn't actually ask that, just if it's possible... what are you actually having trouble doing? those instructions sem pretty straightforward.

Have you had any experience using the method outlined at that webpage?

Do you have any recommendations for or against that method? can you suggest alternatives.

I've tried implementing it. Where does the shared directory reside, on my linux box or on the windows machine?
In short, its not working.

could it be version dependent.

Thanks
