I would like to share my Windows 7 C folder with another Ubuntu Linux 15.10 Lenovo desktop computer. The following URL describes how to do this procedure. http://colans.net/blog/how-mount-windows-file-share-ubuntu-1304
When I try it , I get the Ubuntu Linux error message: mount error(115): Operation now in progress even though I thought I had entered the right password for Password for root@//FVENDING/DevelopmentX64: **********
Here are the Ubuntu Linux commands I tried: 1. sudo apt-get install cifs-utils 2. sudo mkdir /mnt/LOCAL_SHARE_NAME 3. sudo mount -t cifs //FRANKSLINUX/REMOTE_SHARE_NAME /mnt/LOCAL_SHARE_NAME as well as sudo mount -t cifs //FRANKSPC/REMOTE_SHARE_NAME /mnt/LOCAL_SHARE_NAME where //FRANKSPC is the name assigned to the Windows 7 PC.
Please tell me what I am doing wrong and how to fix this problem.
Also, I would like to share my Windows 7 C folder with another Ubuntu Linux 15.10 Lenovo desktop computer in the ** reverse ** direction. The following URL describes how to do that procedure. https://askubuntu.com/questions/489337/cant-access-windows-share
Try this procedure out.
Open Home folder(or any other folder, whatever) Goto File-> Connect to Server type your friend's IP with smb protocol e.g. smb://192.168.1.123/ Click Connect -> Enter Credential
Do I need to install and configure either the Ubuntu Linux Samba server and client ** and/or ** The Windows 7 Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol which is a network file sharing protocol, and as implemented in Microsoft Windows is known as Microsoft SMB Protocol. The set of message packets that defines a particular version of the protocol is called a dialect. The Common Internet File System (CIFS) Protocol is a dialect of SMB. Both SMB and CIFS are also available on VMS, several versions of Unix, and other operating systems.
The technical reference to CIFS is available from Microsoft Corporation at Common Internet File System (CIFS) File Access Protocol.
Please tell me how to do the above procedure.
Do the Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux 15.19 computers have to be on the same network?
Thank you in advance.
