How to mount Time Capsule from linux

on March 12th, 2016 by Hades | No Comments »

Required cifs-utils package should be already provided on Linux.


mkdir /mnt/timecapsule
echo "//timeCapsuleIp/Data /mnt/timecapsule cifs user=timecapsuleUsername,pass=timecapsuleUserPassword,rw,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0" >> /etc/fstab

Of course change timecapsuleUsername and timecapsuleUserPassword. The uid=1000 sets owner of mounted files to Linux. If using other user check it’s uid with id -u username. Check if “Data” folder is right for you – list resources by issuing command smbclient -Uusername -I ip-address -L.
