CIFS or Samba Support to Access/Mount Windows Network Shares.
Install the required packages:
opkg update opkg install cifs-utils libsmbclient0 samba
Please note that the cifs-utils package is unfortunately not currently available in any Ångström feed and needs to be built as per our OpenEmbedded (core) article instructions.

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " samba cifs-utils"

root@colibri_t20:~# mount.cifs //<server>/<share> /mnt/net -o user=<user> Password:
