Remote folder access problem [Solved]

Post#1 by Ed_P » 12 Sep 2014, 23:55

Ok, so I use spaceFM to access a remote folder, //192/168/200/100/KeePass, and I get an error message stating "udevil Not Installed". OK, so I open USM and enter "udevil" in the search window and get "udevil-0.4.3-x86_64-1d.txz 91 K salix installed". If it's installed why can't spaceFM find it??

FWIW I can access the remote system using TigerVNC just fine.

Ok, trying an alternate approach, Porteus Mount Manager. With the mouse on the Mount Point box a msg opens that says "If no mountpoint is chosen one will be created at /mnt/mount-manager" however if the box is left empty after entering the LAN Share fields and clicking on the Mount button I get "Porteus Message" "You forgot to set a mount point". :wall:

Then clicking on the message's OK button I get a new, blank, Porteus Mount Manager window. :evil:

This posting helped:

viewtopic.php?f=81&t=1725&p=15540&hilit=udevil#p15533

and I ended up using:

mkdir /mnt/pc
mount.cifs //192.168.200.100/KeePass /mnt/pc user=Ed, password=

Will most likely be making my own mount script. :good:
