Would anyone please explain a bit about sharing between Unix and Windows?
From my understanding, Unix can only see windows's share/print by Samba. However, I was googling around and found many pages talking about mounting Windows CIFS by just using regular "mount" command. Is Samba outdated now?
Is it right that NFS (network file system) is for Unix while CIFS is for Windows? Can the terms be interchangable?
If I have created a Windows share folder, is this folder considered NFS or CIFS? What would be the easiest way to access this folder from Unix?
What about mounting a Windows box's CDRom?
