 How to Mount a Network Drive (DNS-323) in Linux Mint


Using Samba:

1. Install the smbfs package;

2. Create the directory for the mount (ex: /media/lua);

3.1 If you want to have the drive mounted only once use the mount command:

sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.0.199/Volume_1/Pessoais /media/lua -o guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777

3.2 If you want to have the drive mounted every time you boot, edit the /etc/fstab file:

//192.168.0.199/Volume_1/Pessoais /media/lua cifs guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

4. To load the fstab just type on the console:

sudo mount -a

 

Using NFS (if you have the 1.08 firmware or higher on the DNS-323):

(important: this instructions work but with firmware 1.09 I found NFS to be quite unstable)

1. Install nfs-common package;

2. Install NFS on the DNS-323 (you have to download the Add-On from the D-Link site and install/activate it on the Add-Ons section of the administration page of DNS-323). Add on Network Access configuration of the DNS-323 the IPs of the machines which you want to have access to the drive. Later, if you have some problems connecting to the DNS-323 after a restart you may have to stop/restart the NFS service;

3. Create the directory for the mount (ex: /media/lua);

4. Edit the /etc/fstab file and write something like:

192.168.0.199:/mnt/HD_a2/Pessoais /media/lua nfs users,rw,auto 0 0

5. To load the fstab just type on the console:

sudo mount -a

Notes:

  • You will have to adapt the above commands to your IP and folders;
  • To edit the /etc/fstab just select "Open as administrator" with your mouse right button.

Thank you for the help! Had to install cifs-utils though to get the mount instructions to work.

I'm an absolute newbie. I don't even know how to create a directory (step 2). Could this be written so that a person as green as the Mint color on my desktop would understand it?
