    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)

    Accepted Solution

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

    Is your kernel up-to-date?

    Assisted Solution

    Try this:

    $ sudo apt-get install smbfs

    And then try to monut the cifs share!
