I'm trying to mount a NTFS network file share on a RedHat 7.3 workstation running samba. I can share out a folder on the Redhat box to a windows 2000 machine, but I want to do the reverse. From all the man pages I've read it says to use smbmnt or smbmount. It also talks about re-compiling the kernal, but all the articles refer to 7.2
ANY help would be appreciated. ???
You shouldn't have to recompile the kernel to be able to mount a networked winders share. But you will need a few things before hand:
1. a place to mount it to (mkdir /mnt/whatever)
2. a vaild username and pass thathas access to the share.
3. you would then mount it via (all on one line)
mount -t smbfs -o username=<user>,password=<pass>, //MACHINENAME/SHARENAME /mnt/mountpoint-from-#1
