    Accessing Windows Shares


    Is there any other way to access Windows shares than using LISa?

    I'm a newbie and I don't quite know what to type in the blanks.

    I made a webpage that outlines what I've done with LISa. It contained to many images, so I couldn't post it on this site. Please have a look at it.

    mount -t cifs -o username=yourusernametotheshare,password=password //xx.xx.xx.xx(win_IP)/share /somedirectory

    I hope this helps!

    More on accessing Windows Shares

    Tried:

    mount -t cifs username=Tom //xxx.xxx.xx.x/share//SharedDocs on HP Compaq nc8000 (Hp-819f962739cd)
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

    This is probably an elementary mistake, please bear with me as I am fairly new to linux.

    Accessing Windows Shares from knoppix

    $ sudo mount -t [cifs or smbfs] -o username=username,password=password //xxx.xxx.xx.x/sharefolder-from-Network-Neighborhood /mnt/win

    retrying with upper case share name
    mount error 6 = No such device or address
    Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
    $

    Server neccessary to make tish work

    Is a windows server necessary to use this command, because I just have another Windows machine on the network. The "share" as I call it is in "Network Neighborhood"? Thanks.

    Do you have smbclient on your system? What happens if you type

    smbclient -L //[ip address] -U username

    e.g. for me, I get the following

    Code:
    jules@vengeance:~$ smbclient -L //192.168.1.102
    Password:
    Domain=[MINERVA] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
    
            Sharename       Type      Comment
            ---------       ----      -------
            E$              Disk      Default share
            IPC$            IPC       Remote IPC
            I$              Disk      Default share
            Stuff           Disk
            ADMIN$          Disk      Remote Admin
            C$              Disk      Default share
            shared          Disk
    session request to 192.168.1.102 failed (Called name not present)
    session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)

    The error you're getting suggests to me that the share name isn't quite what you expect it to be.
