Recently I bought an Apple Airport Extreme to improve WiFi connectivity at home. I’m very happy with the results.
Airport Extreme allows you to share a hard drive over the network, since one of my computers runs Linux I decided to modify my fstab to auto mount the shared drive into the Linux box.
sudo mkdir /media/airport sudo vim /etc/fstab
Add the following information at the end of that file (_in one line_):
//YOUR.AIPORT.IP.ADDR/YOURAIRPORTWORKDIR /media/airport/ cifs auto, iocharset=utf8,nobrl,username=AirportUsername, password=AirportPass, _netdev,uid=LinuxUser,gid=LinuxGroup
Finally, auto mount your new fstab entry using:
marin@Corsair$> sudo mount -a
And that’s it!
