Can I mount Azure Files Storage from my local Workstation?

    Question

  • Can I mount Azure Files Storage from my local Workstation?
    The note "Some Internet service providers may block port 445" seems to prove this szenario, but the 'net use' doens't work Error: “The network name cannot be found”

    See: github.com/Azure/azure-content/blob/master/articles/storage/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-files.md#mount-the-file-share-from-an-on-premises-client-running-windows

  • Hi,

    Yes this is possible. This is described in this document (same content the document you are reffering to only different layout).

    So, either the port is blocked or you are using an incorrect storageaccount or share name??

    Did you check the port is not blocked in your (local) firewall?

    Hope this helps!
