I have Ubuntu Server running in virtualbox to which a directory is shared. I need to access this directory, probably even mount it, so that it's easily accessible for me.

When I had Ubuntu Desktop running in virtualbox in the same situation, I could access the folder simply by typing smb:// into nautilus. I don't know how to achieve this in Server / terminal.
