How to connect to files in Windows Shared drives?
We have a lot of files (txt, csv and excel) in Windows shared directories.

Which connector should we use to connect to Windows shares? Or what is the recommended way to connect to Windows shared drives in remote hosts.

Please note we have a number of different hosts where these shared drives are present and each project can connect to more than one shared directory in one or more hosts.

Hi,

The only supported way would be to have your system administrator Mount the Windows Shared drives using Samba / CIFS. They will then appear as regular folders on the DSS server, and they can be mapped to Filesystem connections (which can in turn have associated permissions)
