Accessing Shares via NFS

Network File System (NFS) is a distributed file system protocol allowing a system to share directories and files with others over a network. Like SMB, NFS grants file-level access to users and programs.

NFS is widely distributed to host VMWare datastores or share network folders in a Linux/UNIX environment.

When enabling NFS service on a share, it can be accessed with the following path:

NAS_NAME_OR_IP_ADDRESS:/shares/SHARE_NAME

The NFS protocol is not active by default. To activate it, go to Dashboard > General Settings > File Sharing (see General Settings). Select the configuration icon (pencil) to choose Enable.

Important info: All NFS shares are public and available to everyone on the network. See Shares: Access and Transfer Files for details on public and private shares.
