This question already has an answer here:
I am beginning with the mount and Linux file-system concept. Just as a simple test I have mounted a share from my server(VM) to the client (VM). Things are fine, it is mounted and I could work on it as on a local file system.
And then I tried mounting a share from my physical machine to my client(VM), things are also went fine. But the place where I have been stuck is when I see the color of the shares that I have mounted. Share that mounted from VM to VM is in green and the one I have mounted from physical to VM is look like a normal directory. I haven't used any special option switches while mounting. I wonder what this all about the color thing when mounting, can anyone shed some light?[my distro is debian]
As you could see 173_VM is file share mounted from VM and next is file-share mounted from physical machine. The VM one is in green.
