Thread: CIF share not created by Add Network Folder wizard in Dolphin

    Question CIF share not created by Add Network Folder wizard in Dolphin

    Hi,

    I am trying to perform hard drive back up form my local machine to my Western Digital MyCloud NAS and need a 'mount point?' to copy to.

    I used the Add Network Folder functionality to add a link to the public share on this via the IP address. This then appears in Dolphin as MyFolderName and the URL shown open opening is smb:192.168.0.X

    I was hoping this work as dd if=hdtobackup of=MyFolderName\backup.iso

    But predictably it does not recognise MyFolderName (or smb:192.168.0.X)

    Reading around this I think I need a mounted CIFS share? I was hoping Dolphin would do some of the work for me but I think this the current network folder functionality is only useful in Dolphin, not useful in cmd line and scripts.?

    I'm newish to Linux and I have probably misunderstood what I need. What is it I need and how should I create it?

    mount -t cifs //192.168.0.X/MyFolderName /mnt/MyFolderNameMount

    Then I can use /mnt/MyFolderNameMount in the terminal and have access.

    Dolphin doesn't mount the shares via its 'smb' KIO-slave. It's using smbclient to browse/access the shares.
