Sharing Files


Sharing from windows:
NOTICE: This has not been tested. Once I have tested I will remove this message

Linking to the windows share from your Raspberry Pi:
Mounting the drive:
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=username,password=password //WINDOWS_IP_ADDRESS/share-name /WINDOWS
You should now see all your Windows files in /WINDOWS and you should be able to put files there and see them from your Windows machine

If you want to unmount the shared directory:
sudo umount /WINDOWS

If you want to always mount the shared directory when your Pi boots, you need to edit /etc/fstab and add an entry at the bottom along the lines of the mount command above to mount it always at boot:
//WINDOWS_IP_ADDRESS/sharename /WINDOWS cifs guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0

Once it is all working, please consider closing down and tightening up the access permissions.
