    Accessing windows, from Linux


    Hi

    I am running Open Suse 11 on a computer at my work. We have about 80 other computers all running versions of windows but, I only want to connect to 2 of them. They are just computers with big hard drivers, not ftps or anything like that. It should be just like home networking.

    However, the problem I am having is, they are running windows, I am on linux. I don't need to share my files or anything, I just need to be able to access the files on the two computers. How do I do this?

    You can do a smbmount and mount the windows shares on your local linux box.


    check the man page but something like this


    smbmount //winbox/share /mnt/share -o username=jbob,password=jpwd

    If you are using Gnome, you can use the Connect to server dialogue. On the classic menu it's under Places, I'm not sure where openSUSE put it on their Slab menu.

    YaST usually has some SMB/Samba tools also, though I am not sure whether these are for the client or server end.
