Perhaps this is a FAQ but a Googled for a bit with no luck.
On Linux I do:
mount -t smbfs -o username=Administrator,password=**** //winbox/c /mnt/winbox/c
This works pretty well, but sometimes files "disappear". If I do:
I get file not found.
So I thought I'd try out cifs -- its supposed to be more advanced:
mount -t cifs -o username=Administrator,password=**** //winbox/c /mnt/winbox/c
This basically works but the permissions on files I copy from Windows to Linux are
crazy. I am using Fedora Core 2. Is CIFS ready for prime time? TIA
