sshfs to mount remote servers.
but I also want to connecting windows servers to my ubuntu.
If there's one good thing that I can say about Windows XP is that it supports the SMB protocol. This enables a computer running Windows to share files, folders, and more with another PC. All that other PC needs is the right software to take advantage of the SMB protocol. Luckily, that software is available for GNU/Linux.
on mac, I can click the
Finder bar --->
Connect to Server and then type in the address.
I will show you how to do it on ubuntu.
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
I got Hash Sum mismatch errors:

After googel around, I
sudo apt-get clean # now it works sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
# make a folder where the remote server will be mounted sudo mkdir /mnt/genomic_med sudo mount -t cifs -o username=mtang1 //d1prpccifs/genomic_med /mnt/genomic_med #You will be promoted to type in the password. Password for mtang1@//d1prpccifs/genomic_med: ********
check if you can access the mounted server:
