      For one you can't share a file so your share would be: vws_data. to
      verify what your Windows shares are from a command window type the
      following:

      net share

      You'll see an output like this - You will have additional items:

      Share name Resource Remark

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      C$ C:\ Default share
      IPC$ Remote IPC
      ADMIN$ C:\Windows Remote Admin
      The command completed successfully.

      If vws_data isn't in the list then you'll need to add it for this to work.

      to mount that under Linux you would need to create a "mount point" which
      is a directory where you want to access your windows files under Linux.
      Normally you would create it under /mnt . So as root type

      mkdir /mnt/vws_data

      Now to do the actual mount command:

      mount //192.168.x.x/vws_data /mnt/vws_data

      You may have to add -t cifs at the end but I find with most Linuxes it
      will properly auto-detect the filesystem type.
