Sharity: smbmount for Unix
Connect your Unix computer to Windows, Samba or any other SMB/CIFS Server. Sharity is a cross platform network file system, mounting Windows shares transparently - just as if they were part of your local hard disk.

You are the only one working on a Unix computer in your company and need to access the company’s file server, which is based on Windows? View this and other implementation examples of Sharity.

Not sure which solution for a cross platform network file system to choose? Compare Sharity to other network solutions like Samba’s smbclient, NFS, Samba’s smbmount or Apple’s SMB client in Mac OS X.
