SAMBA copying directories


can it be done? if so, how? its important - 1200+ mp3s organized
into folders, it'll be hell to sort them out using 'mget' in each folder.

well why do you think it can't be done? what have you got set up at the moment? etc... there's no reason it isn't possible by default, but without you providing some useful information no one can guess what might be wrong, if anything even is.

all i need is the command to do it, ive got the newest samba, and redhat8, which shouldnt matter, 'mget' doesnt seem to like me putting in directories, only files. is there a command to copy a directory?

just mount the file system wherever you want and use it as if it were local to your system. depends what the otehr operating system you're copying with is. of course if you're going linux to lniux then you shouldn't be using sabma anyway, but NFS

the server which holds the directory i need to copy is windows xp, i dont have any problems connecting with samba or copying files individually, my
question was if there is a command to copy directories (not files).

i'm aware what your question is. thanks for making sure.

ok, so you mount the xp share on you linux machine:

mount -t smbfs //server/share /mnt/somewhere

and then just use normal cp commands or whatever GUI's you want to copy it.
