Hi Experts,

I like to mount a drive/folder from a different subnet and I wish to know how to accomplish this?

I have two subnets with 192.168.44.x and 192.168.56.x:
1. on 192.168.44.12 I have a share folder with path like this: 192.168.4.12/opt
2. I am currently on 192.168.56.15 and created a mount path like this: /mnt/rmote_opt

I've tried mount option with cifs like this:
mount -t cifs //192.168.44.12/opt /mnt/rmote_opt -o username=xxxxx,password=xxxxx but it doesn't work. Somehow I cannot find //192.168.44.12/opt.

Is there a way to change my current script or there is another way that allows me to mount a remote path from different subnet? Thanks

Can you ping 192.168.44.12? Can you ping the other subnet?

Hi Seth,

no, 192.168.44.12 is not linux. It is window server.

Do you have a switch or firewall blocking samba ports?
Check to see if you can just connect to the remote system first.

smbclient -L 192.168.44.12

This should display the shares if you're allowed to connect.

Hi serialband,

I think it is possible. It is a webserver which the only port allowed on it is port 80 and 443. I will remove the restriction and see the firewall configuration. Thanks.

You ned thes ports open for CIFS:
    netbios-ns - 137/tcp # NETBIOS Name Service
    netbios-dgm - 138/tcp # NETBIOS Datagram Service
    netbios-ssn - 139/tcp # NETBIOS session service
    microsoft-ds - 445/tcp # if you are using Active Directory
