  1. Share your hard disk or your directory under Windows or Linux.
    Do not forget to set write premission for the user.
  2. Now, start the VMware server.
  3. Open the configuration menu of the Virtual Machine and change Ethernet 2 to "Custom: Specific virtual network = Vmnet1 (Host-only)".

  1. (Optionally, when using a Proxy) Open a shell and create a file called /etc/apt/apt.conf with following content:
  2. Install smbfs by using the command sudo aptiude install smbfs and confirm with "y".
  3. Now, you can enter the embedding in /etc/fstab:
    //  [nbsp]
    /mnt cifs auto,exec,uid=1000,umask=000,user,username=XXX,password=XXX      0       0
  4. Finally, you can mount the share manually via sudo mount -a.

By entering this in fstab, the share will be embedded during every reboot. If you want this temporarily, you can do this via shell like this:

sudo mount.cifs //  /mnt

You can choose the destination as you like. Instead of /mnt, for example, to /home/mvbc/workspace/eigenesprojekt. However, you have to create the directory prior to that. If you do not need the host-only access anymore, you have to reset Ethernet 2 to the default value and remove the entry in fstab.
