Map Network Drive in Linux

Are you wondering how to do a Map Network Drive in Linux?

It’s called “mount”ing in Linux. There’s a command called mount in linux that helps you maps a network drive to your machine.

if the server you need to mount is also a linux server. try this command

mount -t cifs -o username=UsernameHere,password='PasswordHere' //server-name or ip/Path /your/directory/in/current/dir/

“/your/directory/in/current/dir/” – can be an ln or a directory and has to be present, this is called the mount point on your current server
