Mounting a network folder in your filesystem on Linux MintSection: System | Actuality: Unspecified
Consider the example of mount external network storage (NAS) in my filesystem as if it were a hard drive.
I have network file storage on a separate disk. I wanted to mount the drive in a separate folder in your home directory.
My actions are as follows.
1. First I find out the IP address for the network name wdmycloudex2
net lookup wdmycloudex2
2. Then open fstab and write automount at boot.
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
for Mate edition
sudo pluma /etc/fstab
In the opened editor will contain a new line following:
//192.168.180.83/public /home/mintguide/MyCloud cifs username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD,noperm,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777,iocharset=utf8,_netdev 0 0
//192.168.180.83/public - the remote folder
/home/mintguide/MyCloud - Local folder (mount point) The path must be without spaces
username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD - Enter if the access to network storage limited
3. That's it. After reboot you will find in a local folder to a network folder. Also I recommend to add a Bookmark for easy navigation.
