I want to mount a shared directory on my mac into a folder on my Ubuntu server so that I can copy backup files to the mac using some sort of automation.
Before I even start on the whole automation thing I would like to be able to mount the directory manually.
Oh how I have Googled! I have come up with many versions the mount command. The one that came closest to working (that is, it asked for my password and didn't object to the answer) was this:
sudo mount -o user=**** //192.168.1.4/server_backups /files/mountpoint
It produced the following error:
mount error(95): Operation not supported
Am I on the right track? I have tried various versions of the command. Either it fails on authentication or I get the above error.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,
