Using Samba (or SMB) shares on Linux is not difficult but you should know some tricks.
First of all, you can use
smbclient to probe your Samba-Server and try to connect to it. You can then mount an SMB-share locally.
In addition, I wrote a tool to synchronize a local directory with...
showmount -e 192.168.12.162 sudo mkdir /private/nfs sudo mount -o rw,resvport -t nfs 192.168.12.162:/NASdata /private/nfs #or sudo mount -o rw -t nfs 192.168.12.144:/mnt/md1 /private/nfs open /private/nfs
If you cannot write to the share, your numeric user ID may not match a user on the target machine and thus you may not have permission to...
EncFS (on Wikipedia) – a FUSE filesystem – can help encrypt cloud synced folders (using business proof AES or Blowfish algorithms). It operates on smaller blocks (not a single big file) and thus works well with Dropbox, because when only one decrypted file is changed, it won't...
Delete your users's Dropbox settings and the Dropbox folder itself:
rm -rf ~/.dropbox rm -rf ~/.dropbox-dist rm ~/Dropbox
Also remove the dropbox package installed on your machine:
sudo apt-get remove nautilus-dropbox
I was trying this with Fuse4X on Mac OS X:
cd ~/Downloads git clone git://github.com/richizo/google-storage-fs.git pip install fusepy pip install boto mkdir ~/mountpoint ~/Downloads/google-storage-fs/src/gsfs.py -f ../gsfs.ini ~/mountpoint
I didn't know what to do when I encountered this problem:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./gsfs.py", line 48, in...
AutoFS is a convenient tool to mount remote filesystems automagically.

Mount SSH filesystems
My personal favorite: Fuse4X
Use with this distribution of SSHFS: https://github.com/fuse4x/sshfs
See my dedicated blog post on SSHFS on Mac OS X 10.6.8 with Fuse4X!
Deprecated Option: MacFUSE sshfs using command line
First install MacFUSE.
Then get the sshfs binaries:
cd ~/Downloads svn co http://macfuse.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/filesystems/sshfs/binary sshfs-binaries
First install apache2:
sudo aptitude install apache2 apache2-doc
Then enable the needed mods dav and dav_fs:
sudo a2enmod dav sudo a2enmod dav_fs
and reload the apache2 configuration:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
Now setup a directory for webdav access. You can do this by adding the following lines in the file...

How To for Ubuntu Linux
First, install the required package davfs2:
Warning: my experience with gmailfs was not excellent! It was a bit slow and you always risk to lose data you stored on that account.
based on IMAP: http://sr71.net/projects/gmailfs/
(it used to be http://richard.jones.name/google-hacks/gmail-filesystem/gmail-filesystem.html but this was based on the Webinterface and that changed often)
gmailfs works with FUSE....

NFSv4 exports exist in a single pseudo filesystem, where the real directories are mounted with the --bind option. Here is some additional...
I'm not extremely happy with this product, it is slow (even as it has a Gigabit LAN port) and there are more problems with it.
