Using NFS to connect to FreeNAS

Postby mcvd on Wed Oct 24, 2007 12:39 am

Hi,

is it possible to connect to my FreeNAS (http://www.freenas.org) server using NFS? So far, I used only CIFS but I'm wondering if NFS would be better (faster?).

FreeNAS supports NFS. As long as the NFS daemon is running you should be able to mount it. You'll probably need root privileges, however, in order to invoke the mount command.

I'm looking after some nfs stuff on my new zonbu to read files froms my home computers (all linux based) but do not find any...

nor binaries nor modules

I have spent quite a time reading the docs on zonbo web site but I just found reference of how to connect to some samba share. I do not want samba, I want nfs as I have a *nix only shop at home...

does someone have any clues or pointer to show me? thanks

PS: I'm running in the developper mode so I have root access to the box

Hmm. This will require steps not for the faint of heart. The overview at
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Share_Directories_via_NFS
outlines the basic steps.

The Zonbu kernel does not include NFS support - I checked that. Building a new kernel & installing it would be the first step.

You would need the nfs utiltities - the emerge command in the reference above should be sufficient. Not mentioned but you would also want to start the appropriate services.

I assume you can figure out the appropriate mount commands or changes to configuration files to get the NFS server mounted at boot time.

That's unfortunate as it will get me out of the update process :(

on the other hand it's the opportunity to also include pulseaudio and libdvdcss ;)

Thanks for the reply.
