I want to mount a netword drive on the server (SBS2008). I have two options: Either using a fedora which already mounts on a CentOS server or directly on the CentOS server. Here is the command I tried on the fedora machine:
mount -t cifs //192.168.xx.xx/abc /mnt/lan -o username=usernameofwindowsmachine,pass=xyz
If I use this command nothing happens and if I press enter it goes in the next line and make nothing.
I also tried to mount on the CentOS directly but no command worked (mount -t smbfs, smbclient, smbmount, ...). Smbmount is not installed. smbclient gets a timeout and fedora use cifs and not smbfs ... The fedora machine already has a mount on a Windows 2003 Server, but I don't know how this has been made. I don't want to install something because I only want to transfer a big file from CentOS to SBS2008.
Because I'm a beginner I'm missing knowledge in Linux ..
So it is not that easy to mount a network drive ... I went another way: I saw that WinSCP was installed on the SBS2008 and connected on the machine and managed to transfer the file. The speed is not that good (1,8 MB/sec.) but hey it works.
