What is remote drive mapping?

Samba Share For Mac

Dvd play for mac. Remote drive mapping is designed to make working with files on the Rutgers central server systems (that is, on RCI and Eden) as convenient as possible. With remote drive mapping, File Transfer Protocol (FTP) software or any other special software isn't needed to access files. Once connected via an assigned drive letter, the files will be just as easy to change as if they were located on your own hard disk.

  1. Mount Windows smb shares on a Mac using Python. Mounting an SMB share uses the share name and not the local directory name. Nfs mount fails from Finder though works from command line. Command line: unmount a smb network drive. How to escape password for smb mount.
  2. To connect to your Mac, Windows users need the network address for your Mac, and a user name and password to use to log in to your Mac. To find your Mac computer’s network address, choose Apple menu System Preferences, click Sharing, then select File Sharing. The address appears below the “File Sharing: On” indicator, and looks similar to this example: smb://

Oct 08, 2019 I can access the Windows 10 SMB shares from my Mac, but not the router's NAS share. I do know from experience with the Windows 10 PC accessing the NAS share, that SMB version 1.0 access has to be enabled from the client in order to work with my NAS share, which I think uses plain-text passwords, which is not enabled by default in the /etc/nsmb.

  • A valid RCI or EDEN account.
  • For access off-campus, the Cisco VPN software configured to connect to the Rutgers network. Documentation located at http://oit.rutgers.edu/vpn/
  • A Samba password, which must first be obtained by clicking on the Samba Access link on the respective system's Webtools page below. The Samba password, separate from the RCI or Eden password, will be sent to the account owner's e-mail address. The same holds true for departmental accounts and student organization accounts


  • The path to connect to the shared folders There are two possible Samba paths. The first is www, the public_html directory in which Web page files are kept. The second is homes which is the special directory on the account which users are allowed to access using Samba.
  • Finally the name of the host (i.e. RCI or Eden) upon which the share will be located.

From the Mac OS X Toolbar click on the Go menu and select Connect to server

In the Server Address field. type in the appropriate path. The path will be entered in the following format: smb://system_name/share_name

For example, to mount the RCI_drive directory type:




to mount the public_html directory.

Click on connect after the address has been written

Click Connect to connect to the Samba directory. You will be prompted for your netid and your unique Samba password that was e-mailed to your RCI account

A screen will appear displaying the contents of the remote share on RCI.

Files can now be moved, removed, and accessed as if the files were on the computer the user is using.


I have recently been having trouble connectig to an SMB share on our netrwork.

When I try to connect to it (CMD+K), I normally enter the details of the share, then a dialogue box comes saying 'Connecting to SMB://...' and another dialogue bow comes up asking for the username and password.

However for some reason now it just hangs on the first dialogue box, perpetually saying 'Connecting to SMB://..' and the username and password box never appears.

I can ping the sever so it knows it is there, but I just can't connect to it as it gets stuck right before the bit where it asks me for the login details.
