How-to: Mounting Novell shares under Debian

Earlier i have describe how to get into Novell shares. Now I want to show how to get this under system boot.

As we know the /etc/fstab file contains information about our partition and mount points,

[file system] [mount point] [type] [options] [dump] [pass]

Now, we have to add information into /etc/fstab about Novell shares like this:

server/user mount_point ncpfs options 0 0

NOVELL/JOE /media/novell ncpfs rw,user,passwdfile=/etc/ncppass 0 0

In /etc directory we have to create a file wich will contain information about our Novell login and password. The information should look like

SERVER/USER:password

i.e.

NOVELL/JOE:joe1975

The last thing to do is to restart your server and enjoy Novell shares in Debian 🙂
