You will not see the
command works on nowadays, But now it is using Common Internet File System” (CIFS) rather than smb file system using smbmount.
[root@rc-138 sharepoint]# mount -t cifs //10.10.0.120/Network-Sharepoint /mnt/sharepoint/
//10.10.0.120 /Network-Sharepoint = Anonymous samba share on 10.10.0.120
/mnt/sharepoint = where share is mapped to local system.
How do I access window file sharing from linux desktop.
#mount -t cifs //192.168.10.14/shared/ -o username=fileuser,password=pass /mnt/share1
This will mount the windows share “/192.168.10.14/shared” in linux machine after the authentication. Pls note that samba sharing didn’t use any password encryption. So do not use any administrative account to share the file share.
a. Create a user
b. add this user in a new ‘samba” group
c. Remove the user’s group from the user account. This would be a preferable file sharing access.
How do I access the window share from commandline.
