I have a windows share. I would like to setup my Debian box to RSYNC some files to the windows share.. Do I setup a windows share? Anyone have directions?

I think you need the libsmbclient package, and the smbfs one might be useful too.

Is your kernel up-to-date?

I have actually followed this article below. The problem is I am getting the error "mount: unknown filesystem typw 'cifs'"

I am running Debian.. Am I missing a package to install??
LeviDailyAuthor Commented:
Ok, an update. I installed cifs-utils and now I am getting

mount error: cifs filesystem not supported by the system
mount error(19): No such device
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual oage (e.g. man mount.cifs)

Try this:

$ sudo apt-get install smbfs

And then try to monut the cifs share!
