Basic setup is as follows. A desktop and a laptop. Both have ubuntu installed. The desktop is going to function as a server. The laptop is going to function as a workstation.
Basically, there is a mounted partition on the desktop. It is mounted and functioning properly on the server. From here, I would like to know how to properly share and mount the partition on the client. I've installed smbfs on the server following several sets of instructions on the web. The obstacle is mounting the share on the laptop workstation.
I've read several guides and am getting conflicting advice about which protocol to use (CIFS or SMB). My setup is ubuntu server 14.04 on the server end. Ubuntu mate 15 on the client.
Advice is appreciated.
