CIFS or Samba Support to Access/Mount Windows Network Shares.
First install 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 instructions.
Optionally verify in-kernel Cifs Support
root@colibri_t20:~# cat /proc/filesystems | grep cifs nodev cifs
Allows easy access of any Windows share similar to e.g. an FTP server:
root@colibri_t20:~# smbclient --user=<user> //<server>/<share> Enter <user>'s password: Domain=[YOURDOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba x.y.z] smb: \>
Seamless access on a file basis is possible through in-kernel cifs file system driver as follows (Note: requires kernel cifs support as outlined above):
root@colibri_t20:~# mount.cifs //<server>/<share> /mnt/net -o user=<user> Password:
