share network mountd drive
Hello all
After reading this:

I am wondering, so is it ok to mount a server drive over the network and the re-share it (writeable) for some clients? If yes, are there any special precautions to be followed? Or is it just "mount over network" and ""share this directory" with permission to write?

Thanks and cheers

Here's the (corrected version) of the post you cited:

mount -t smbfs -o "username=admin,password=admin" // /tmp/share
In this instance, the "share" is exported by (apparently a Windows machine). Local Samba clients can access it via the Linux "mount point" /tmp/share.

If another, different PC wanted to access the same share, they'd map to host - not to your client.
