22.3.2. Mounting the Share

Sometimes it is useful to mount a Samba share to a directory so that the files in the directory can be treated as if they are part of the local file system.
To mount a Samba share to a directory, create the directory if it does not already exist, and execute the following command as root:
 mount -t smbfs -o username=<username> //<servername>/<sharename>/mnt/point/
This command mounts <sharename> from <servername> in the local directory /mnt/point/.
