1) Create a share on the Windows server with correct rights
2) Create a temporary directory under the /mnt directory. In this example we will use ‘temp’ (/mnt/temp). This is where a mount will be created for the remote file system.
– mkdir /mnt/temp
3) Create a mount to the remote file system. This is done using the “mount” command.
– mount -t cifs -o username=<windows user>,password=<password> //<ip of remote server/share directory> /<path to local directory>
example: mount -t cfis -o username=administrator,password=gwavaadmin //10.1.11.104/po1 /mnt/temp
4) Change directory to the newly mounted directory, this should look like the root of the post office directory.
example: cd /mnt/temp
