Freebsd Mount a NAS via SMB / CIFS

Posted on in Categories , , , , , , , last updated January 25, 2009

Q. I want to use our NAS server to store backups. Our NAS supports FTP and CIFS / SMB sharing technology. How do I mount and store files on NAS using FreeBSD? How do I automate entire procedure using a shell script? Is that doable? If so, what’s the easiest solution ftp or CIFS?
