Mount.CIFS - Unable to mount to share - Need example
Posted on 2012-08-14
I just installed CIFS from the Debian package directory. When I look at the help, it looks like the mount command starts with mount.cifs <remotetarget>...etc.. I just cant seem to get the command working. Can anyone help me?
I have a Windows 7 share I am trying to mount. Is there anything I need to do on my Windows side as well?
Usage: mount.cifs <remotetarget> <dir> -o <options>
Mount the remote target, specified as a UNC name, to a local directory.
Less commonly used options:
Options not needed for servers supporting CIFS Unix extensions
(e.g. unneeded for mounts to most Samba versions):
Rarely used options:
Options are described in more detail in the manual page
man 8 mount.cifs
