I've just literally spent about 2 hours trying to simply mount a windows share on linux.
cifs causes deadly hangs as discussed here.
So I tried to mount via
nfs as discussed in this page.
I spent a few minutes searching the
nfsshare program, until I realized I had to install Unix Services for Windows.
After downloading the huge file, I was deterred by Microsoft's scare tactic:
this program has known compatibility issues, and the subsequent,
setup has detected that a required System Service (TCP/IP) is not currently installed...
This is even after I enabled the Simple TCP/IP services from
Turn Windows features on or off.
$ sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.1.76:myshare ~/mount3/
on Debian unfailingly gives me:
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.1.76:myshare
Even though I've opened read, write, full to everyone under windows for the share in question.
$ sudo showmount -e 192.168.1.76
usually gives me:
rpc mount export: RPC: Procedure unavailable
clnt_create: RPC: Unable to send
I tried using
freeNFS.exe, while still getting the access permission error on Debian. I tried using
haneWIN, which fails with
Failed to start PortMapper.
