Linux – mapping to a windows share (SMB)

As per below. First you will need to install samba client.

In Fedora / Centos …

yum -y samba-client

then use the mount command to mount the share to a directory…

mount -t cifs -n // /mnt/sharename -o username=guest,password=

It will be similar in other distros. Remember to create the /mnt/sharename directory before trying to mount any share to the directory. Directories are created like so;

mkdir /mnt/sharename
