    Problem with mount


    Hi,

    I am trying to mount a folder in a Windows machine to Ubuntu linux machine.

    The command i am tyring is

    Code:
    mount cvsdata:/cvsrepo /mnt/share
    It says Mount to NFS server failed "server is down".

    cvsdata is the name of the Windows machine

    and the folder to be mounted is d:/cvsrepo, which is in the windows machine.

    Thankx in advance.

    If I'm not mistaken, you need samba to access that share, not nfs.
