To view & access NT Server

By chandras ·
I am trying to setup to access a NT server running on the same domain. The reason is that the web server (apache) needs to link to the NT server to a directory with the link contents.
I have installed LinNeighbourhood which can see the the server.My Q is do I need to install a Samba client on the server or is there another easier way. I am running RedHat 7.

Thanks

chuckie

Samba is the easiest and cheapest way to do this.

You can also use MS Unix services for NT, and us an NFS "mount", but the MS Product is not cheap.

Use
mount -t smbfs //servername/share /mnt/winnt -o username=(validuser),password=(password)

You'll have to create the directory /mnt/winnt

If you're using apache to 'link up' as you say, you will want to consider creating an apache user on the NT box and using those credentials. Also consider using fstab to automount the filesystem at boot time, or put the mount command in the rc.local to mount it immediately at boot time.

Good Luck

Pretty easy when you know when you know what you are doing.
