And alternative to the slow and unreliable Samba/CIFS/Windows sharing
First, you have to have NFS installed in the NAS (server) and in Debian, Ubuntu (client)
- Edit your /etc/exports file in the NAS. I use the following line
/shared_directory XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (rw,async,wdelay,insecure,no_root_squash,no_all_squash,no_subtree_check,insecure_locks,no_acl)
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is the IP address (local) of your Linux PC.
/shared_directory is the path in the NAS that you want to share
- Restart the nfs and portmap services in the NAS.
service nfs start
service portmap start
- Edit your /etc/fstab file in your Linux computer. (This way you have your NAS directory mounted each time you boot into Linux)
Add the following line:
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY:/shared_directory /mount_point nfs rw,user,hard,intr,tcp 0 0
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY is the IP address (local) of the NAS
/mount_point is the empty directory in Linux where the NAS shared filesystem will be mounted.
/mount_point will be the same as /shared_directory in your NAS.
