I am running boot2docker on windows and I am trying to access a shared folder on my host from the VM.
I have executed the following
sudo mkdir /mnt/docktest sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.24.75/dock /mnt/docktest -o user=username mount: mounting //192.168.24.75/dock on /mnt/docktest/ failed: Permission denied sudo mount -t smbfs //192.168.24.75/dock /mnt/docktest -o username=username mount: mounting //192.168.24.75/dock on /mnt/docktest/ failed: No such device
My host (192.168.24.75) has the folder "dock" shared with access to the user I am supplying.
I have tried adding the password and domain in the command as well to no avail (even though I would rather not have to)
Note: I would rather not share the folder using the VirtualBox shared folders as it would restrict me to be between the host and it's own vm.
