A year or two ago, I bought a ReadyNAS and was having problems getting it to mount on Ubuntu. I tried various methods, but without much luck.
I’m writing this post now as I had to mount this share on my Linux laptop, and couldn’t remember how I’d done it on my Linux desktop.
It turns out I found a very easy method - I can’t say for sure whether this is better than other alternatives such as AutoFS, but it’s a lot simpler.
To start, install the NFS common package with Aptitude (or
sudo aptitude install nfs-common
/etc/fstab and add the following line (changing the IP address and
desired mount point):
192.168.1.5:/media /media/Vault nfs users,_netdev,auto 0 0
Reboot once that’s done and you should see this directory on Nautilus’ sidebar (or somewhere similar if you’re using a different file manager).
