Okay, so I just bought a ReadyNAS nv+ v2, installed an add-on so that I get root-access to it via ssh, and lo and behold, it was running something based on debian-squeeze (ARM).
On my previous NAS (ubuntu server) I mounted stuff with sshfs, but before retiring that NAS, I tried NFS and it was way faster and more reliable.
On the new NAS, I can mount via sshfs, but I'd really like to mount via NFS. I'm new to NFS, so I'd like some help.
What I've done so far.
Then I ran this
Yielded no errors
Then I ran the following command
root@Amunet:/# /etc/init.d/portmap restart
Stopping portmap daemon....
Starting portmap daemon....
root@Amunet:/# /etc/init.d/nfs-common restart
Stopping NFS common utilities: idmapd statd.
Starting NFS common utilities: statd idmapd.
Then on my desktop machine (ubuntu 11.10) I ran
sudo mount 10.10.1.100:/c/home/johan /media/nellie
which results in the error:
sudo mount -t nfs 10.10.1.100:/c/home/johan /media/nellie
10.10.1.100 is the NAS... YES! "/c/home/johan" is the correct path to the directory I want to share. I guess the "c" is to make windows users comfortable so that they don't have to deal with the unix filesystem.
mount.nfs: Connection timed out
Another thing to mention is that, when I ordered this NAS, the shopping site listed it as having NFS support. But on Netgears site they have some pages that says it has NFS support and some that say it does not have NFS. The previous model had NFS. And clearly, the NFS software is there.
So, it might need some tinkering!
Anyone up for the challange?
