To connect to your N-drive in Linux

1. Login to Linux
2. Create a mount directory under the /mnt: directory (E.g. /mnt/n-drive)
3. Edit your /etc/fstab file. Add the following line to the end of it:
 //algshare.ottawa.ad.algonquincollege.com/home /mnt/n-drive cifs username=YourUsername.password=YourPassword 0 0
This will make the drive persistent whenever you logon.
4. Run the command:
 
mount -a to mount N-Drive
 
You are not connected to your N -Drive.
