This is very similar to mapping a network drive in Windows. But I like to point out that this is not the same as accessing a share over Samba or Windows File Sharing. You do not have to share a file or directory in Novell to use this tool. It lets you map any Novell directory to your Linux box. I also like to point out that this tool needs to know your Novell username & your Linux username, and these two should both have sufficient permissions to be doing this. Here’s how you do it:
- Make sure you have ncpmount installed by typing:
sudo apt-get install ncpmount
- Map & Mount the Novell Drive by typing:
I broke that all onto their own lines just so that it would be easier to read, but you should enter it all on one line. I found a really great ncpmount resource here.
