 Mounting a samba share
Author: Dan 
Date:   30-04-08 19:29

To mount a samba share, so you can access from tools such as OpenOffice or StarOffice, do something like this:

sudo mount_smbfs -I 10.55.0.17 //dan@blah/websites /mnt

Where:
- dan is the user you want to connect as
- blah is the samba server name
- /websites is the name of the samba share you wish to access
- /mnt is where you want to mount the share
- 10.55.0.17 is the IP address of the samba server

You may not need the -I 10.55.0.17
