How about mounting the share?
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
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
Your Local Mount Point is /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>
<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?

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
