I have access to a linux machine, but not root access. I can access a samba share through smbclient. I'd like to be able to mount this share so I can access it from within Matlab. Normally, if I had root access, this would be trivial. But since I don't, I'm not sure how to proceed.
smbmount isn't installed on this machine. mount.cifs is installed, which I think I read is a replacement for smbmount? However, when I try it, it says I need to run it sudo.
Does smbmount (or mount.cifs) need to be suid in order for a non root user to mount a samba share?
