apt-get install samba4 to get the latest version of Samba.
apt-get install cifs-utils to get necessary files/utils required to mount Windows shares.
Then do the following:
Type the following command to mount the share:
mount -t cifs //windowsmachineip/sharename -o username=user,password=urPassword /mnt/share
On older machines the shares could be mounted as follows:
mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=urPassword //windowsmachineip/sharename /mnt/share
Hello andre_win. When you have spaces in folder names, you escape it using "\" (a backslash). You can also provide the whole path between quotes.
Hello Andre. In case of spaces, you specify the path in quotes.
E.g if the location is //windowsmachine/this is my folder, you just put it as '//windowsmachine/this is my folder'.
Great tutorial, here's how I did mine(I'm a beginner, mounting shares from a Windows 8 machine in a workgroup):
enter root password
apt-get install samba4
apt-get install cifs-utils
mount -t cifs //windowsmachineip/sharename -o username=user,password=urPassword /mnt /share
done, able to view files.
Now I just need to find a way to view the share in 'places'.
Hello! What should I write at sharename if there is a space in folder name? Thanks.
