Mounting Windows Shares in Ubuntu using CIFS

Using CIFS (Common Internet File System) is the method to mount windows shares on a Linux box (Ubuntu in my case). CIFS is the replacement for SMBMOUNT, the following is an example of how to use this command. You must execute it as root.


sudo mount -t cifs //{IPADDRESS}/{Windows Share} /mnt/yourdirectory -o username=administrator,password=password

A good post that discusses this in detail:
