Mounting Windows drives and shares in Linux

The following have come in handy for mounting a Windows share on a Linux computer:

mount -t cifs -o username=user,password=password,umask=000 //winbox/winshare /mnt/home/


smbmount //winbox/winshare /mnt/home/ -o username=user,password=password,rw

An example of mounting a local NTFS partition held on the same machine:

ntfsmount /dev/sda2 /mnt/windows -o umask=0002,silent
