Use samba to access Windows shares:

Do apt-get install samba4 to get the latest version of Samba.

Do apt-get install cifs-utils to get necessary files/utils required to mount Windows shares.

Then do the following: mkdir /mnt/share Type the following command to mount the share: mount -t cifs //windowsmachineip/sharename -o username=user,password=urPassword /mnt/share On older machines the shares could be mounted as follows: mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=urPassword //windowsmachineip/sharename /mnt/share
