MAP into Linux?


I can TELNET into linux. Say I want to copy a file into it? Say I need to know how to do it, both on Linux and on Windows XP. How would I?

The Linux I need to map into is Linux Redhat 7.3.

The Linux I will be mapping from is Linux Redhat 7.3 & 9.0.

Windows XP Pro is the other OS I need to map from.

Thanks in advance.

I have no idea what you mean by mapping but I would look at either:
samba and windows file sharing
scp and winscp

Mount/MAP a Network Drive?

I have a program of which runs on Windows and saves a file there.

I would like to copy this file into Linux, where the server I host will load it up.

Currently, in order for me to get this file there, I must first restart the server in Windows 98, where I can MAP a network drive, then copy the file to a directory.

Then I restart the computer back into linux, where I can TELNET and initialize the server.

Currently, I'm using the nwserver (Neverwinter Nights Dedicated Server for Linux) software.

MAPPING is a DOS/Windows Term. It simply means to mount a Network Drive. (C:\ on Computer 1) = (Z:\ on Computer 2 (//mshome/computer_1/c)

________________________________

David. I heard samba was used for this type of thing. Could you give me a little detail on how I can mount drive C:\ from computer 1 w/ Windows, to /mnt/map_c on computer 2 /w Linux? Also in vis'versa if you know how? Windows 98 or Windows XP will do.

Share the drive on windows then create a mount point and mount the share:
mkdir /mnt/myshare
mount -t smbfs -o username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD //winbox/myshare /mnt/myshare

If you want the share to be mounted on each boot then you can create an entry in /etc/fstab

If you want to map a linux directory to a windows drive then just create a share in smb.conf and follow your usual mount procedure as if it was another windows machine.

I can not automatically mount a network drive on Linux because I do not know how to setup an automatic password with fstab.

When I mount the network drive manually, it request a password in order to gain access to my directory on my windows box. It works fine if I enter it.

However, after setting up fstab to auto-mount the network drive, this option is not being asked of me when Linux boots up. It waits for me to simply push enter and when done, it fails because it could not athenticate. I need to have the password automatically enter when it is auto-mounting with fstab.

How do I enter a password option in fstab so I may automatically map a network drive? Man pages were not very helpful...

Computer 1: //Athlon_xp
Shared Directory on Windows: F:\NeverwinterNights\nwn
MAP DIRECTORY: //Athlon_xp/nwn

Computer 2: //Gateway
Shared Directory on Linux: /home/c/NeverwinterNights
MAP DIRECTORY: //Gateway/home/c/NeverwinterNights
