Quick Tip: How to mount a windows share under Linux

2 October 2009 No Comment

First you should install smbfs package. Under Debian or Ubuntu is easy, just run:

$ sudo apt-get install smbfs

and apt will install all necessarily dependencies.

Now just mount your windows share

sudo mount -t smbfs -ousername=user //ip_of_your_windows/share /mnt/share

Probably it will ask you the password and after just go in /mnt/share too browse your windows share.
