In my windows 10 command prompt, when I need to set the drive to some network shared drive I just use
net use V: //192.168.xxx.xxx/folder
I added Bash on Ubuntu on Windows in my Windows 10, and I'd like to have access to my network drives from the terminal as well, so I tried mounting it
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=myusername //192.168.xxx.xxx/folder /mnt/new_folder
where I created my
new_folder in the
/mnt folder, but I get the error
sudo: cannot find computer COMPUTER NAME
COMPUTER NAME is the actual name of my computer that I can see in the Explorer as well.
What am I doing wrong and how can I mount network drives in my windows bash?
I got it to work partially, by adding my computer name in the hosts file in
127.0.1.1 COMPUTER NAME
But I still cannot mount the network drive
