Thread: Creating CIFS Share in SUSE?

    Default Creating CIFS Share in SUSE?

    What I would like to do is create a CIFS share on a SUSE 10 machine and mount it to another SUSE 10 machine. How would I go about doing this and where could I possibly find documentation for this as well. Thanks.

    Have you installed SAMBA on both machines? It would simplify the process a lot

    Suse Linux (10.0 and 10.1) uses smbfs to mount shares as mapped drives.OpenSUSE (10.2 and 10.3) uses cifs. I think you are asking about an early version of Suse that uses smbfs and replacing that with cifs -- is that right? Or am I confiused by your use of "10"?

    I am new to SUSE so this is actually something I was not aware of. I was giving the version of SUSE I am using just in case it was needed. I am just looking into the option of using CIFS not really having much information on it.

    The version number is needed. It's more that "10" it's 10.0 or 10.1 or 10.2 or 10.3. Makes a difference to my answer. So which is yours?

    does this help at all?

    samba/cifs:

    "SMB" was the original name, "CIFS" is Microsoft's later
    re-branding of it, but MS was extending SMB long before they renamed it,and there isn't really any useful distinction you can make between the two names.
