    Sharing folders on a VM with LinuxICE

    Okay, I've got an instal of LinuxICE 2.0.1 running on a VM using Parallels on Mac OS 10.5. The hard drive is only 60 gigs, so I want to share all the music already loaded on the Mac with the LinuxICE vm machine.

    To share the folders, you have to enable file sharing on the Mac for Windows (smb), install smbfs on LinuxICE (check) and restart the VM with LinuxICE on it. All done, but now I'm wondering exactly how I access a shared folder on LinuxICE. Ubuntu instruction talk about using the menu bar to connect to the I.P. of the Mac to identify folders but since it's LinuxICE, all I've got is nGhost.

    What's the right procedure?

    you can either use smbmount from the command line, or you can IIRC, browse the network via thunar (if not, install nautilus and use that to browse the network). Thunar and/or Nautilus can be found in the Apps menu (or thunar via the folder icon on icepanel). If you want it to perminently mount, add an entry to /etc/fstab that looks something like this:

    Code:
    //192.168.1.2/someshare /home/user/somefolder cifs user=foo,pass=bar 0 0
    I've personally dropped smb on my new server in favor of sshfs. If you are able to run openssh-server, sshfs is a lot easier to manage than smb. All you need is your user/pass and you have full access to everything on the host machine you want. No setting up shares, permissions crap, etc.
