    Mount windows share.

    Hey,

    I'm having trouble mounting a windows share. In windows I just click "Map network resource to disk" or something like that and write the address - \\server\share. No password or anything.

    Using ubuntu, I tried adding this line to fstab:

    //server/share /mnt/win smbfs defaults 0 0

    Is this correct? Since I don't need a password in windows, I shouldn't need user credentials here right? How would I go about finding the log about the mounting attempt?

    Thanks.

    Since I'm on page 4 with no replies, I thought I would bump this.. Sorry.

    I dual boot Vista/Ubuntu 9.10 on the same machine. I wanted to have access to the Windows side of the hard drive from Ubuntu so I mounted the Windows partition by entering this line of code in my /etc/fstab file:

    Code:
    /dev/sda3 /mnt/Windows ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
    Where "sda3" is my Windows partition. I didn't make the string of code up myself...I dug around this forum until I found it so I can't explain to you what all these commands mean. I can only attest that it works.

    CIFS has replaced SMB. Here is a How-To for mounting CIFS shares.
