What is the best way to share directories between Windows Vista host and Linux guest on VMPlayer?
The scenario is following:
- on the Windows host I've got development tools (IDE, etc.);
- on virtualized Linux I've got the test environment;
- I need to share code directory between the two;
- I'd prefer to have files served from Win to Lin, but if the other way around is more efficient, I consider switching.
Edit: should I use
cifs rather then
Edit2: Ok, my initial question was because I've done it "by the book". Mounted with
smbmount. Was terribly slow, unusable. Then I've mounted with
cifs. Didn't help. Now I've tried the
ip option as suggested by Evan. No change.
Is it about round trips to domain controller or something like that? Should I set up local account just for sharing?
