Ubuntu 12.10 distros and above do not support the smbmount command any more to connect to Windows network shares.

Instead, use the “mount” command (run “apt-get cifs-utils” first):


smbmount //some/remote/dir /mnt/remotedir -o user=”domainnametestuser”,password=”pw”


mount -t cifs //some/remote/dir /mnt/remotedir/ -o username=testuser,domain=domainname,password=pw
