copy files from linux to windows
i want to be able to create a script that runs in a cron, that once a night, it will backup /usr/local to a windows server. Whats the best way of going about this? some sort of non-authoritative ftp file transfer?

smbfs -- use samba to access a windows shared folder on the network

turbo_acura 11-23-2004 01:37 PM setup samba on the linux box..that will let me see the windows shares and then be able to copy files over to the windows server...right?

you got the gist...

chances are you have support already; it is very common.

i would recommend smbfs for backup on same network due to ease of implementation. the alternative likely requires more config/setup.
