Linux: how to mount Windows shared folder

In this article I explain how to mount Windows shared folder in linux Ubuntu (this is the same in the other linux versions).

First of all, install smbfs packet:
open the terminal and write 
sudo apt-get install smbfs
Now, we have to create the folder where is possible to make the share:
sudo mkdir /mnt/windows
At this point, we can mount the share folder
sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=YOUR_USER,password=YOUR_PASSWORD //IP_ADDRESS/SHARED_NAME_FOLDER /mnt/windows
replace YOUR_USER and YOUR_PASSWORD  with Windows user and the relative Password
replace IP_ADDRESS with the Ip address of Windows machine
replace /SHARED_NAME_FOLDER with the windows shared folder
