Mount Samba Share on Linux

Quick reference for the right syntax to load a Samba share on Linux via the command line.  This will mount a guest-accessible share, or can be used to pass username/password combination!

Requires cifs support for mount.  On Debian stream Linux (Ubuntu, Mint, etc) this is available in the package cifs-utils.

mount -t cifs -o user=guest //server.ip.addr/ShareName local_mount_point

This will prompt for a password.  If the share is guest accessible, provide no password by simply hitting enter.

Here -t specifies the mount type and -o passes options.
