Location Of Network Drives

Recommended Posts

I am running Ubuntu 8.04. I can browse my Windows shares by going to "Places", then "Network". I am assuming these network drives are mounted somewhere. I can't seem to figure out where. I am not even sure what mechanism(maybe SAMBA) is being used to view and/or mount these shares.

simple answer,

Nautilus does not mount it..

I know it looks mounted and asked if you want to unmount..

an quick check with wire shark will show that it does a smbtree like search and displays this information. then uses smbclient to grab what you want to see or put new things on..

this is messy if you want to use the command line or even VLC at times..

you can use samba in your fstab to mount the shares...

Yep, agreed. I'm using Debian on my desktop at work. I installed samba then I could navigate, access the windows network.

Cool. I just mounted it manually. I wanted to try the command line program mplayer to play some avi files on a Windows share.
