Mount windows network drive from Linux
I have Fedora 10 and Redhat Enterprise 5 which are my two servers, so I want to mount a windows folder on these linux machine but to no avail. my linux commands syntax are as follows:-
[root@cash ~]# mkdir /media/Windows_Share
[root@cash ~]# mount -t cifs -o username=perfectpol7,password=perfect**7,debug=4 //10.0.0.3 /media/Windows_Share
and I am getting this error message:
Mounting the DFS root for a particular server not implemented yet
No ip address specified and hostname not found
and if l change cifs with smbfs getting this error message
[root@cash ~]# mount -t smbfs -o username=perfectpol7,password=perfect**7,debug=4 //10.0.0.3 /media/Windows_Share
mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'
my samba status is running
[root@cash ~]# /etc/init.d/smb status
smbd (pid 2583 2580) is running...
nmbd(pid 2584) is running...
The folder I want to map is shared from the windows and I can access it on all my linux servers that is through places -> network ->windows network ->then i double click the windows computer and access the folder.
now confuse as the smbfs is said to be unknown filesystem and cifs is not implemented yet how do i implement it.
