I have the following problem I have edited the fstab to mount a partition with CIFS network.
//192.168.0.1/sharefile /home/user/sharefile/ cifs username=linux,password=12345678,user=user,uid=1001,gid=1000,rw,auto,_netdev,file_mode=0664,dir_mode=0775,sec=ntlm,vers=1.0 0 0
Install linux mint on a computer to be able to use it remotely I need a VPN connection. But at the time of starting the computer the CIFS partition cannot be mounted, so I must connect via VPN first and then run the command 'sudo mount -a' and the partition mount.
I dont have enougt experencia in Linux but there is the possibiity to create a executable on the desktop and the user click that and ejecuted commands like 'sudo mount -a'.
To connect by VPN I import a Linux.ovpn file and then connect like in the picture
I hope I explain well greetings.
