    Default Access Windows Netword Drives from Terminal

    Hi,

    My Windows Network Drives (samba/cifs) ara available in the KDE Dolphin file managers, but I can't find their mount points. The output of the mount command doesn't give me any hints:


    /dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
    debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
    devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
    tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,mode=1777)
    devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)

    How do I access Windows Network Drives from terminal, e.g. Konsole, xterm etc ?

    Code:
    man samba
    will give you a list of all commands connected to Samba.

    On my system the man pages for the different utilities mentioned there do not seem to be available. BUt I think that searching for them on the Internet might gives results.

    I'm finding that at least with OpenSuSE 11.3, removable drives are often mounted in the /media/ directory, not the /mnt/ directory. I assume since you can see the shares in Dolphin your problem isn't setting up SAMBA, just determining the proper path.

    I think that KDE can mount samba/cifs shares on its own (via "smb://"), and
    they don't show in the output of "mount" because they are not really
    mounted. To have them available to all, really mounted, they have to be
    mounted via samba. /etc/samba/smbfstab et al.
