[ubuntu] Mount Windows Share Permanently

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I had trouble mounting windows share. I wanted to auto mount so that my Ubuntu 12.04 computer would connect to my windows server on my home network. I spent a lot of time in the last several days trying to get it to work. If it helps anyone, since I have seen a few posting here with the same problem, this is how I finally got it working. Go to this doc https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and follow the instructions, in my case I am using "Mounting unprotected (guest) network folders" so I used the entry in fstab, all one line, //servername/sharename /media/w (Hardware)
