Mounted a volume?
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 19, '01 09:54:27PM

How'd you get a remote volume to mount at all? The version of SaMBa that I installed could not mount (no "smbmount") but only "share" a folder/volume. The documentation said smbmount was only developed for use with Linux in that particular package. We may be talking 'apples & oranges' -no pun intended- but you sound knowledgeable enough to set me straight.

nfs mount is different from SMB (samba) mount. NFS is network file system (developed by Sun now maintained by a commitee) which is pervasive in UNIX land. The standard mount command supports it. SMB is server message block, the M$ windows network protocol. Mounting windows share requires sambamount. The true nature of these two is somewhat more complicated, but you get the idea.

Original poster: Does the mounted volume appear in a "computer" finder window?
