    Theres actualy alot of ways. What are you trying to do?
    are you loging in via a remote protocol, or accessing web based folders?
    What are you trying to do after mounting?

    As the previous poster said there are various forms of networked filesystems, it just depends on what you want to do. They include

    NFS - native networking filesystem for Linux
    CIFS - uses Samaba to provide windows networking support
    WebDAV - uses a web server, i.e. Apache
    FTP - pretty common
    SSH/SSHFS - easiest way to move files about, can also mount via SSHFS

    Re: How to mount a remote server

    do you need login credentials or can you down load the file directly with something like wget? Do you know the path of the remote files you need?
    wget is probably the best program in all of linux for getting files from servers, but without more info its hard to say how to use it.

    can you be more specific?

    heres an example of downloading a file, where I know the path to the download, using wget:
    Code:
    wget 130.111.192.241/fcc_10.014_all.deb

    Hi,

    Iknow the path on the server.
    The issue is i want to mount the driver since it requires domain\Username & Password.

    Once I will be able to mount the driver on the remote server i wil be able to go to the installation path and install the application on my VBox.

    Make a local directory: (Open a terminal)

    Code:
    cd
    mkdir MyRemoteServerDirectory
    sudo mount Server:/Home/YourUserName/DirectoryofInterest MyRemoteServerDirectory
    cd MyRemoteServerDirectory
