Is there a way to mount a Windows Share into a Linux folder?

Is there a way to mount a Windows Share into a Linux folder?

I’m using OpenSuSE 11.1.

a thought goto terminal and type : touch <path name folder to mount at> then use mount command to mount your windows folder there

or

goto Yast->partitioning and select where you want the windows drive mounted

if your asking to only share specific windows directories under linux then samba + shares comes to mind.

I guess when one talks about “Windows shares” that this is about SAMBA. There is good information about SAMBA in openSUSE SuSE Linux HOWTOs and Tutorials by Swerdna.

Try this: Samba: HowTo Mount a CIFS Network Share [AKA Map Network Drive] in openSUSE 11 plus FAQs

This one comes from a real office network, where a partition of a Win2000 server is mounted on an openSUSE server:


//192.168.1.4/Shares       /Share     cifs    iocharset=iso8859-15, uid=1000, gid=100, rw, workgroup=WORKGROUPX, file_mode=0664, dir_mode=0775, user=USERX, password=PASSWORDX 0 0

If that’s what you need, here it is :wink:
