    Default Remote Places

    Very new to forums (please be kind)

    I'm using BT3 and I need to load various word lists, data files from external sources...

    I have a link to my windows share via smb (eg. smb//192.168.1.1/share)

    One such command (failing - 3Could not open file/stream for reading):

    airolib-ng testdb --import passwd <list file>

    I have tried every variation I can think of, but no success.
    I cannot copy the file locally (root) or load to /var/tmp/... (not enough disk space)

    Can I use smb directly, and if so how - thank you for any help!

    I have tried that, but i'm having trouble with the syntax - can you please give an example...

    I plugged in a usb drive that auto-mounted, but could not even reference that... copy and pasting the complete path (in both situations), but still no joy? I can see and access material, but not use it with (any) functions - it seems to by how I path to the files.

    I don't want you to think that I just ask questions, and don't do the research - I have been reading reference material for over 2 weeks, downloading what I can, and writing my own step by step tutorials (learning technique - duplication really). The questions I will be asking are to fill in the gaps to this amazing new environment; I hope some day to give back.

    Thank you again,

    I just googled the phrase "mount windows share linux" which returned about 216,000 results. The one from justlinux looked good. Cheers, Kurt

    Assuming: File & Print Sharing is turned on in Windows and you can connect
    to your intended windows share from another windows box.
    Windows IP is 192.168.0.1
    Windows Share Point is c$
    Windows User Account is Administrator (and it has a password
    assigned)
    Your Local Mount Point is /mnt/tmp


    mkdir /mnt/tmp

    smbmount //192.168.0.1/c$ /mnt/tmp -o username=administrator <enter>
    <you will be prompted for a password now>
    Password: <type in password>

    cd /mnt/tmp

    <you should have an smb mounted share now>

    If you don't know how to mount a sambashare you should maybe start getting known to linux better before starting to play around with BT.
    What is your intention of using BT instead of another linux distro?

    I should try that pickup line the next time:

    "Hey, wanna see my BT". To whom can I send my complaints if it is not working (not that I would doubt that it will work)

    Thank you all for your responses - I was away for a few week reading anything and everything - learning a whole new OS can be dauting at times, but a blast with each break through... I guess were always filling in the gaps
