Hello,
you need to prepare a mount point at first, I would recommend /Volumes/
sudo mkdir -p /Volumes/share
sudo chmod -R 777 /Volumes/share <- this is to allow other users on machine to use mount point
mount_smbfs //fcumc;username:saturn97@gateway.gotdns.org:8020/share/users/userfolder /Volumes/share

Open in new window

Hi jwebster77
Use Terminal - it can be found under Applications -> Utilities, or by searching with spotlight.

Type or copy+paste the commands that robertcerny mentioned above.
sudo mkdir -p /Volumes/share
sudo chmod -R 777 /Volumes/share <- this is to allow other users on machine to use mount point
mount_smbfs //fcumc;username:saturn97@gateway.gotdns.org:8020/share/users/userfolder /Volumes/share

Open in new window
