    SAMBA as Local Folder


    Hello, I'd like to ask if is possible to view samba URL as a local folder (like NFS). I want to do that because some programs I use can't open the samba folder and view what it content.
    Thanks.
    Best regards.

    Of course it's possible. All you have to do is mount the samba share as a local folder

    mkdir /mnt/[sharename]
    mount -t smbfs //server/share /mnt/[sharename] -o username=user,password=pass

    Put an entry in /etc/fstab if you want it to be permanent.
