Not sure if it is possible but is there a way to mount a windows share where you give the local IP and folder

this would then be available to all the VM's?

I can do it in Citrix (sorry for swearing) but is it possible in Proxmox with out the use of iSCSI / NFS etc...

thanks and sorry for the dumb question.
OK so if you do this ( don't use \\ - use // )


it will mount as a directory but it does not show the contents nor does it allow you to upload anything?
