Probably the fastest way is to mount the share using the cifs filesystem on Linux.
It gets accessed with a passwd, you can have passwords on a per user basis, or use LDAP (active directory).

Start here:

Linux CIFS Client (historic site)

Then follow the link back to samba for what you need.

existing script
Code:
 
export TEST=\\\windowsshare

is there any way to pass login credentials while exporting a path from windows from a shell script
