Remote mounting from Linux

Tech Computer Center logo

To mount an SMB file system, you must be root on the local machine and understand the mount and/or smbmount commands. For information on these commands type

    man smbmount
or
    man mount
for a list of required command line parameters.

An example linux mount commant series would be:

    % mkdir account
    % mount -t smbfs //userhost.nmt.edu/share ./account -o username=username,password=password
where share is the SMB share you're trying to mount, and username and password are your TCC account details.
