    Can't find my NAS on Home folders...

    So far I've had several problems that seem difficult to solve.
    rdp?
    Sharing my NAS?

    How can I get the NAS to show in my Home folder so I can Grsync my NAS to my folders.

    rdp that's an entirely different question.

    #1, make sure you have samba installed

    sudo apt-get install samba

    #2
    I've never tried this, but you could make a symbolic link to the network location of your NAS, eg

    cd ~
    ln -s smb://nasAddress nasAddress

    Where nasAddress is the name of your samba shared folder. It might work...

    You should probably just use nautilus and navigate there through the Network Locations tab to save yourself some trouble.

    Cheers
    Please & Thank You

    Go to your /home folder then Ctrl+h to show hidden files. Find .gvfs then right click it and create a Link to folder for it. It creates a similar thing to a shortcut in windoze. Drag the Link to folder to where you want it e.g. Desktop. Mount your NAS then start Grsync. In the Destination field browse to your Link to file and inside it you should see your NAS drive.

    If your NAS is formatted to NTFS or FAT then set the options in Grsync for the transfer to have --no owner --no group otherwise it can screw up permissions.

    Samba is installed.
    No .gvfs folder or file?

    Go to Terminal then
    Code:
    ls /home
    and post the output back here.

    EDIT: If you're running 12.10 the gvfs folder is now at /run/user/YOUR_USER_NAME/gvfs

    I'm on 12.04, hence the difference.

    Look in /run/user/clive to see if you can find that gvfs file.

    For Remote Desktop Protocol i.e. connections outside a local area network, I use Teamviewer.

    The easiest way to sort this if you're new is to install gigolo and use it to set up access. No messing about on the command line or faff.
