    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


    mount -t cifs username=Tom // 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 // /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

    jules@vengeance:~$ smbclient -L //

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