    Here are the three steps I have used to Enable Automount of a ReadyShare Drive on several computers running OpenSuse13.2.

    1. Mkdir /media/public

    2. Edit /etc/fstab to add this line:
    //[routerIPaddress]/USB_Storage /media/public cifs guest 0 0

    e.g., //192.168.1.1/USB_Storage /media/public cifs guest 0 0

    3. sudo mount -a

    I haven't installed Leap 42.1 on any of my computers, but I expect this method to work when I do.

    Thanks @AltoHombreGordito.

    In addition one can set the mount command (mount -a) to run at boot time using cron.

    True. However, in this case it is a one time CLI entry to mount the Readyshare drive at that time. Subsequently it automounts on boot, no cron required.
