    Default How to mount a remote windows partition onto local linux host Through rdesktop ?

    basically i am able to connect to my other windows machine using rdesktop
    I want to be able to mount the window machine's partition (particularly my media folder c\user\myaccount\Video)
    i know rdesktop ipaddr -r disk: blah blah blah mounts the partition onto the local machine
    however, i cant figure out what the specific commands are
    i tried followings but with no luck
    Code:
    rdesktop ipaddr -u username -p password -r :\c=\mnt\mntpoint
    rdesktop ipaddr -u username -p password -r :c=\mnt\mntpoint
    rdesktop ipaddr -u username -p password -r :\c\myaccount\Video=\mnt\mntpoint
    all these commands didnt work

    do anyone know how to do this? i thikn there must be a way

    PS: no luck with smbfs as my machines arent on the same lan network (not sure if samba can connect remotely)

    I'm no expert with rdekstop, but I understand that 'rdesktop -r disk:,sharename>=<path>' is used to share a local directory with the remote server.

    For example, to share my Documents folder (with a remote Windows server)

    Code:
    rdesktop -r disk:documents=/home/dean/Documents my.remoteserver.net
    The files will then be located on the server under '\\tsclient\documents'

    thx for the reply
    so this is why i am not getting it mounted on my local machine
    is there anyway to mount the windows remote onto my local machine anyways?
    with another linux remote machine, i could just use sshfs
    but i dont know wat to do with windows

    I connect to a remote windows file server with my job as a field engineer for a digital microwave company. We use a PPTA VPN tunnel to do this.

    is there any easier way to achieve that?
    like SSHFS when mounting another remote linux's partition onto local system
    it is very easy and straightforward, been always using it with my other laptop until i got windows server 2008 R2 on it due to work reason...

    You could use SSHFS to achieve this (for remote mounting the windows shares) if preferred.
