I have a virtual machine running on Kubuntu (Oneiric Ocelot) that I access via a Windows based pc using remote desktop connection. I need to read and write on network drives that are on a Windows server for which I have permissions. I tried to set this up via Dolphin but it did not work, I'm thinkng because I didn't see a way to issue credentials (it only prompts for name, server and folder when you try to add a network drive). It's not clear to me how to specify the path to my folders on the network. If I look at Windows explorer I see: Computer>BB001(E>Docs>Reports However, my IS folks said the path is: \ARX\ARX1\Res\BB001 I have an ip address for the windows server as well which I also tried. How does one determine the proper name, sever, and folder to add a network drive in Dolphin? Would it be better just to do this at the Konsole? How? I want to mount Computer>BB001(E>Docs>Reports on my VM. Looks like from what I've read I have to create a mount point first. sudo mkdir -p /mnt/sharename That's telling the VM to create a temporary subdirectory under mnt called sharename, right? Then I have to mount the drive. sudo mount [IP AND/OR FOLDER ON THE WINDOWS SERVER] /mnt/sharename -o \ username=username,password=password,dmask=777,fmask=777 Is this strcuture correct? How do I determine what to specify what's in brackets? Anyway, I looked around nin the forums here and other places on the web but didn't come up with an answer.
