Mount Network Drive Using Windows CMD

28 Jan , 2015  

This is the command for mounting network drive :
NET USE [drive_letter] [path_to_network_drive] /PERSISTENCE:[YES/NO]

  • Replace [drive_letter] to the assigned drive letter, for example Z:
  • Replace [path_to_network_drive] with the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) path, for example \\\codes
  • Choose between YES or NO for persistence option. If you choose YES, then the mount point will be kept after you log out. If you choose NO, the network drive will be disconnected when you log out.

With this command you can improvise to mount network drive on your client windows machines. For example you can create a batch file called sharedfolder.bat which contains:
Then you just need to create a Group Policy Object (GPO) which run this script during user log in process.

Network Configuration in Linux Terminal

24 Jul , 2014  

Networking is the basic thing to configure after installing a new operating system. Especially if you are a system administrator, in which case, almost never work on those computers directly.

Therefore if you want to be able to manage it remotely, you must make sure those computers are configured to connect to the network and accessible from the network. I’ll show you how to configure networking using terminal in Debian/Ubuntu family of Linuxes. More…

Linux and The Dream of Using Free Software Everywhere

26 Jun , 2013  

This is a fine evening of June 26 and I’ve been cruising around the web while listening some old sets from 2010 Electric Daisy Carnival. ¬†This is a very interesting evening actually, I’ve stumbled upon a quote from Stan Lee and a blog post about a recent riot that happened recently in connection to my country’s football. These things seems to be connected all the way to the root of many problems in here (I might write about them as well, who knows). But those are not the things I’m going to write about this time, this evening I also decided to check out the recent release of DistroWatch’s weekly issue. Usually I would check on them every Monday, right after they were released, but this week has been a busy week for me.
