It’s relatively simple to mount a Windows share in Linux. Here’s how you do it.
Step 1 – Create a directory to mount to, e.g. /mnt/WinDir
[user@techedemic ~] cd mnt [user@techedemic ~] sudo mkdir WinDir
Step 2 – Mount the remote folder as follows
# Syntax: # mount -t cifs //[remote machine name/ip]/[sharename] /[localfolder]/[mountfolder] -o username=[username],password[password] [user@techedemic ~] sudo mount -t cifs //10.1.1.10/incoming /mnt/WinDir -o username=techedemic,password=password
Step 3 – You should now be able to access the share (you might not have the correct permissions, but that’s beyond the scope of this howto)
[user@techedemic ~] cd /mnt/WinDir [user@techedemic ~] ls File1.txt File2.bmp File3.gif
