Is it possible to mount directory (that is on PC) from iLiad?

I tried: (from iLiad)
mount //192.168.100.102/home /mnt/cf -o username=luka,password=***
mount: Mounting //192.168.100.102/home on /mnt/cf failed: No such file or directory

any suggestions?

What protocol are you trying to use? The iLiad doesn't have built in NFS support. If you want to use Samba, you'll have to install all the samba tools on the forums and do an smbmount.

Note: I haven't tried to do either. So your mileage may vary.

If you want to mount a SMB share have a look at /usr/bin/cifs.sh:
Code:
root@ereader:~# cifs.sh
Usage:
   /usr/bin/cifs.sh umount
   /usr/bin/cifs.sh mount <server> <share> <workgroup> [<username> <password>]
This allows you to mount SMB/CIFS shares to your iLiad. Standard mount directory is /mnt/share.

The type of filesystem doesn't matter. It's how it's shared that's important. It looks like you need to research networked file shares in general, not just on the iLiad.

You are right. I was convinced that smb is just for ntfs filesystem. It is shared though nfs. (from /etc/exports), but now I am using smb. I mounted it to /mnt/usb, but now when I try to open some pdf file from content lister it starts loading file and than nothing... any idea why?
