How do I mount a drive in debian wheezy?

I have been trying for three days to make this happen and I have tried every combination I can find using both CIFS & Samba. Nothing works.

 

I need to mount my server which does not need a name or password to access

 

The name of the server is 3tbvortexbox and it's address is 192.168.1.68

 

Some of the combos I've tried are:

 

mount -t cifs guest //3tbvortexbox/share-name /mnt/nas

 

mount -t cifs guest //192.168.1.68/3tbvortexbox /mnt/nas

 

mount -t smb://192.168.1.68/3tbvortexbox/music/flac /mnt/nas

 

mount -t cifs -o guest //192.168.1.68/share /nas

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try

 

mount -t smb //192.168.1.68/3tbvortexbox /nas

 

or

 

mount -t smb 192.168.1.68:/3btbvortexbox /nas

 

If those don't work let me know and you can mount it through the /etc/fstab.

 

Is there any reason you are insisting on a smb filesystem jnstead of just plain old fashioned NFS?

Both of them say that nas doesn't exist even when I try to create a directory called nas manually

 

debian:~# mount -t smb //192.168.1.68/3tbvortexbox /nas

mount: mount point /nas does not exist

debian:~# mkdir nas

debian:~# mount -t smb //192.168.1.68/3tbvortexbox /nas

mount: mount point /nas does not exist

Only because I have no clue what I'm doing. I'm trying to install MPD on a pogoplug and I'm following various sets of instructions. I managed to get MPD installed but can't seem to access the nas.

 

As soon as I get to a computer, I'll write a little bit up. I think that Vortexbox automatically installs NFS client and server software, and Linux to Linux, it is far faster and far less troublesome. But SMB will work, and is already setup.

 

P.S. - "ls" is equivalent to "dir", and "pwd" will tell you what directory you are in. "cd" is change directory, and works just like Dos, except you use a "/" instead of "\", and there are no drive letters. Everything starts from the root directory.

Getting it to work is the main thing chum! We can always make it better!

 

Let us know how your adventure proceeds. :)

I still haven't figured out using the mount from a command line but I was able to edit the fstab file and get it to work. Thanks for the help.
