This document provides help on mounting SMB/CIFS shares under Linux.
All files accessible in a Linux and UNIX systems are arranged in one big tree, the file hierarchy, rooted at /. These files can be spread out over several devices. The mount command serves to attach the file system found on some device to the big file tree.
Use the mount command to mount remote SMB/CIFS shares under Linux as follows:
mount -t cifs //192.168.1.1/mySharedFolder -o username=myUser,password=myPassword /mnt/mySharedFolder
-t cifs : File system type to be mount
-o : are options passed to mount command, in this example I had passed two options. First argument is the user name (myUser) and second argument is the password (myPassword) to connect to the remote computer.
//192.168.1.1/mySharedFolder : remote computer and share name
/mnt/mySharedFolder : local mount point directory
Make sure to create /mnt/mySharedFolder first.Print This Post
This document provides help on mounting SMB/CIFS shares under FreeBSD Operating System.
The mount_smbfs command mounts a share from a remote server using SMB/CIFS protocol. You can easily mount MySharedFolder share using the following syntax:
mount_smbfs -I 192.168.1.1 //myUser@serverName/mySharedFolder /mnt/mySharedFolder
192.168.1.1 is the IP address of the remote computer.
myUser is your user name.
serverName is NETBIOS Server Name.
mySharedFolder is CIFS share name.
/mnt/mySharedFolder is the local mount point directory.
An ISO image is an archive file (disk image) of an optical disc using a conventional ISO (International Organization for Standardization) format. ISO image files typically have a file extension of .ISO.
The name "ISO" is taken from the ISO 9660 file system used with CD-ROM media, but an ISO image can also contain UDF file system because UDF is backward-compatible to ISO 9660.
1. Procedure to mount ISO images under Linux
You can mount an ISO image via the loop device under Linux. It's possible to specify transfer functions using loop device.Print This Post
You can access Samba shares by using SSH tunneling. We need a host computer (x.y.z.w) and a destination computer (192.168.0.1, is located in the x.y.z.w network), we'll use adi as username and pass as password.
First we'll create a new mount directory:
# mkdir -p /mnt/share
Now we connect to it:
# ssh -N -L 139:192.168.0.1:139 email@example.com
Now we have to run the following commands:
# umount /mnt/share
# mount -t smbfs -o username=adi,workgroup=WORKGROUP,password=pass,port=139,dmask=770,fmask=660,netbiosname=computer1 //localhost/share /mnt/share
x.y.z.w=computer's IP address
pass=password for the share
