@samzuercher Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!
Can you please elaborate bit more query? What error message you getting? May I know what exactly are you trying to accomplish?
Azure File Storage uses SMB and NFS protocols.
There is similar thread in SO forum, please refer to the suggestion
We have the Azure AD DS auth now for Azure Files, but it requires the client machine to be joined to AAD DS. Clients outside of Azure will more than likely not be AAD DS joined so the need to use the storage account key.
Additional information: What are different ways to access files in Azure Files?
You can mount the file share on your local machine by using the SMB/NFS protocol, or you can use tools like Storage Explorer to access files in your file share. From your application, you can use storage client libraries, REST APIs, PowerShell, or Azure CLI to access your files in the Azure file share. A file share can be accessed via browser if the application uses REST APIs.
