Anybody like to talk about this? I can mount network drives from Mac and Windows shares using the GUI. So the network is working fine.
However, I'd like to work on the network files from the command line. How do I
1) mount the network drives
2) where do the files appear in the file system
3) how can I use the automounter
the network drives can be mounted and unmounted using the mount and umount commands, respectively
each time it is mounted, you have to enter the password in plain text, unless you have it stored in the fstab file
in some distributions, there is a /mnt directory, it is good practice to create subdirectories here to "mount" to. unlike windows, linux mounts to a directory.
here are some helpful links:
