AFAIK, you will only be able to mount windows from Linux using cifs or smbfs. In my world Linux uses Samba for both. Samba does not run on your Windows computer it only needs to run on your Linux computer.

If you run this command on a Redhat and most likely any other Linux computer you can see if Samba is running. You should see processes for smbd -d and nmbd -D running

ps -aux | grep mbd

If samba is running I use this command on my Linux servers to run perl scripts on Windows file system all the time.

$mp = "/mnt/mylinuxmountpoint"; $winshare = "//windowsservername/windowsshare"; RHEL3 $mount = "/bin/mount -t smbfs -o username=hari9,password=hari9passwor +d,workgroup=hari9doomainname"; Older versions of the 2.4 kernel use smbfs and newer versions use cifs +. RHEL5 $mount = "/bin/mount -t cifs -o username=hari9,password=hari9password +,workgroup=hari9doomainname"; sub Mnt { my ($mntcmd,$mount,$share,$mp); ($mount,$share,$mp) = @_; $mntcmd = "$mount $share $mp"; system("$mntcmd"); } Mnt($mount,$winshare,$mp);
Perl Good - Manual process bad

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
