    Network executable


    Newbie question - Linux Mint 11 in (Virtualbox)

    in windows I would create a shortcut to a network executable: \\10.0.0.0\name\file.exe.

    This would execute a program to run on my local machine. I need to do the same in linux. I am sure the answer is right under my nose but I can't seem to find it...When I do a "Lookup" it sees the network address so I know that my connection is ok to that server.


    You assistance would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks
    Tom

    You need to be able to mount the volume/share that the program resides. Also Linux will not execute a Microsoft windows program.
