How to setup NFS share from Ubuntu Linux in Xtreamer

A have an Xtreamer multimedia player.

It can access and mount NFS shares.

In my Ubuntu computer I have to edit the /etc/exports file and insert:

/[Ubuntu_folder] [xtreamer_ip](ro,async,no_subtree_check,all_squash)

The corresponding NFS configuration line in Xtreamer is:

/NFS Shortcut/[xtreamer_mountpoint] ->[ubuntu_computer_ip]:/[Ubuntu_folder] -o rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp

Do not forget to port forward the 2049 port (NFS) in the router.

  1. How do you access your Xtreamer to make the changes? I run Ubuntu 10.04, but I cannot work out how to get into the Xtreamer file system to make changes.

    I want the Xtreamer to access a QNAP NAS. The Xtreamer sees the directory structure of the shared folders, but it does not see any of the contents, i.e. the Xtreamer thinks the folders are empty.

    Also, does the port forward in the router need to be tied to an application?

    Many thanks for your post.

    • OK, lots of questions, let’s if I can help you:

      – To access your Xtreamer you use it’s HTTP server interface, you don’t need a shell.
      – How are you sharing your folders in the NAS (SMB, NFS,?)? I recommend NFS for streaming speed. Also check your shared file permissions in the NAS.
      – It should not need to be tied to an application. It needs to tie a device to a port.
