What OS on the RPi?

Synology NASs support NFS which is the native network file system in Linux. You do have to enable it on the Synology.

Raspbian install from Noobs, I have created a mounting folder. And followed a tutorial but no luck

fwiw I have the following line in my /etc/fstab

192.168.1.3:/volume1/dp /home/pi/dp nfs user,nfsvers=4,rw,auto,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,_netdev 0 0

which gives directory lines in the following format

-rwxrwxrwx 1 4294967294 4294967294 367041766 Jan 1 2012 discoveries-prep-orig.zip
drwxrwxrwx 926 4294967294 4294967294 20480 Jun 4 20:10 discoveries-scan
drwxrwxrwx 3 4294967294 4294967294 4096 Jun 20 14:04 Downloads
drwxrwx--- 11 4294967294 4294967294 4096 Jun 22 19:19 Dropbox

where the 4294967294 should read 'pi', no ideas if it works as have not used nfs in anger - just the samba connction to my Windows box

@drgeoff - why do you think Synology supports nfs *properly*? - I saw a note somewhere that to get uid/guid working correctly you had to have a working kerberos server

my 414slim also has problems with -
* ssh (can log in as root, but not a normal user)
* ntp (their config file is rubbish - it ignores any servers you have on your LAN, and they also violate the terms of use for the ntp pool)
* dropbox (sometimes completly ignores files if more than one put at remote end at same time, only fixed by unlinking and re-linking

and these are just the bits I have used so far :(

best regards
Dave

Show me the word "properly" in what I wrote. :)

The Synology NAS units which run DSM are Linux boxes.

UPDATE:

I have now managed to mount the drive.

However it is forgotten after each reboot so each time I am having to re run the folloing code in LX Terminal

sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.0.17:/volume1/kodi /mnt/kodi

Is there anyway round this?

Add the following to your /etc/fstab:

Code: Select all

192.168.0.17:/volume1/kodi /mnt/kodi nfs defaults 0 0
That may or may not be what you're actually looking for, but it is equivalent to your mount command.
