    Re: Downloads to network share

    I can't speak to the Frostwire thing but it seems I have Transmission installed on a test box here and it really doesn't like a gvfs mounted ( mounted through the file manager ) share.

    So I created a mount point:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/srv
    And temporarily mounted the share to that folder:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t cifs //ubsrv1804.local/public /mnt/srv -o guest,uid=1000,nounix
    Changed the default download folder in transmission to that folder and it all seems to work:

    Based on this:
    drwx------ 1 digitalknight digitalknight 0 Aug 10 14:57 'smb-share:server=marksnas,share=movies'
    Your temporary mount would look something like this:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t cifs //marksnas/movies /mnt/srv -o guest,uid=digitalknight,nounix
    Notes: Depending on the particulars of your network you:

    ** may have to replace marksnas with the ip address of the nas or if it is designed to work with MacOS the mDNS name ( marksnas.local ).

    ** If the nas requires credentials replace guest with those credentails:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t cifs //marksnas/movies /mnt/srv -o username=nas-user-name,password=nas-user-password,uid=digitalknight,nounix
    One other thing. Based on my attempts to help folks using the WD My cloud you are going to have to dumb down the smb version a bit by adding vers=1.0 to the list of options:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t cifs //marksnas/movies /mnt/srv -o  username=nas-user-name,password=nas-user-password,uid=digitalknight,nounix,vers=1.0
    And maybe the security level by adding sec=ntlm to the list of options.

    Thank you! That actually worked great for the WD My Cloud! I think I need to change how I am sharing the drive on the TP router though as it would not work. I think I have to share individual folders on it for it to work instead of the entire drive which shows as "sda1"

    Is there a way to get the mount to save after reboots?

    Re: Downloads to network share

    I don't know which iteration of the mounts I posed about you used so I will use the most complicated one as an example:
    sudo mount -t cifs //marksnas/movies /mnt/srv -o username=nas-user-name,password=nas-user-password,uid=digitalknight,nounix,vers=1.0
    To make this mount at boot time:

    *** Edit /etc/fstab

    *** And at the bottom of the file add this expression:
    Code:
    //marksnas/movies /mnt/srv cifs username=nas-user-name,password=nas-user-password,uid=digitalknight,nounix,vers=1.0,noauto,x-systemd.automount 0 0
    *** Unmount the share if it is mounted:
    Code:
    sudo umount /mnt/srv
    ** Then do the systemd 3-step:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl daemon-reload
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart remote-fs-target
    EDIT: Made a typo there - sorry. It should have been:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart remote-fs.target
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart /mnt/srv
    Then check to see if it mounted correctly in your file manager..

    If it does it should mount that way at boot time.
