Sorry new to Linux so the windows_server will be the domain controller? What would the remote share be?
Top Expert 2009

Commented:
no suppose you have created a share on windows which is "myshare" and pc ip is 192.168.1.2

so it shoudl be like this

mount -t cifs //192.168.1.2/myshare -o username=Myusername,password=Mypassword /mnt/windows
