Post subject:  [Solved] How to mount nfs folder in R6

I have a small home network. I have setup one pc running Ubuntu 9.10 to share a folder with other Ubuntu pc's on the network using nfs. This works (although it took me most of the day!!).

However I can't find how to do this with the pc running Linhes R6. I have looked at the Linhes service menu.

Can anyone help?

[Edit] See my last post

You have the nfs exporting on your ubuntu pc, right? post its /etc/exports

# /srv/nfs4/homes  gss/krb5i(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)

The Linhes pc is Thanks for helping.

To have your R6 PC read the nfs export from your ubuntu machine you need to enable the nfs daemon on R6 as well as add an entry to its /etc/fstab to mount it. I'd post more details but my FE isn't up at the moment.

The /etc/fstab on R6 should have a line like:

IP.OF.UBUNTU.MACHINE: /mnt/HDD-2/Videos /myth/video/export nfs defaults,auto,noatime 0 0

You can change the mount point on your R6 box to your liking.

Perhaps someone with a functional FE can post the specifics? If not, have a look at the NFS page on the Arch wiki and know that R6 doesn't use the same init system that Arch does. You'll likely need to do:

$ sudo sv start nfsdaemonname
$ sudo nfsdaemonname

On the R6 box.

Thanks for the reply. Are you (or anyone else) able to be more specific about how I make the necessary changes to R6 given it is different to Arch.

Post subject:  Mount NAS thru nfs

I have now bought a NAS (QNAP TS-439 Pro II) which I have connected to a socket in my adsl router. I have given it a static IP.

I have tried to follow this post and also this one I have read and re-read the Arch wiki.

I am able to SSH and sftp into the NAS with no problem from ubuntu machines. I just can't get the Linhes box talking to the NAS.

Can someone please help me on how to connect my combo FE/BE R6 machine to the NAS?

Also, if I do get it connected, where will the files appear in the menu of the FE?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Would you believe it is as simple as going into the Service menu/Linhes/Miscellaneous settings? All that is required is the IP address and the file path.
