Share Folder as File System From Windows to Linux

in this post i will show you how to share folder from windows to Linux , you can use smb but in this post i will use it in command line.

Option #1:
SMB

By Press ( ALT+F2 ) the new dialog will be opened just type in the box the below :

smb://windows-server-ip/shared folder 

Option #2: 
Using command line.
  • mkdir /windows-backup
  • as root user
  • mount -t cifs //windowsip/sharefolder -o username=administrator,password=administratorpassword /windows-backup.
  • run df -h to make sure the folder has been mounted.
Note :
If you are using RHEL 4 the above command will not work, check the below

mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=administratorpassword //windowsip/backup /windwos-backup

Thank you
