View Full Version : Freenas server and NFS
Since a good week or so my Freenas server is running. The only problem is that I can't get NFS to work. Anyone out there how to get this to work perfectly?
TVIX Netshare is working on my Windows machine perfectly streaming iso's. CIFS provided by Freenas is unreliable for these DVD iso's. Playing MP3/AVI are no problem in CIFS.
NTFS is supported in "limited read only" on FreeNAS as far as I know...
It's best to use NFS considering freenas runs on FreeBsd (stripped).
It should not limit your ability to use it in combination with PC's (mapped
network drives) and Media players supporting SMB (CIFS).
I dont use NTFS, harddisks are UFS formatted. I want NFS as network protocol to work.
FreeNAS is running from an USB stick on a dedicated machine.
You don't mention a lot about what you do in order to start NFS. Makes it kind of hard to pinpoint what's wrong....
I guess that you start NFS and use exportfs command to export your share?
If not, maybe start with giving your configuration?
Then I have noticed that if you export
then the NFS entry in the Tvix shall be "my/exported/path" without the leading /
I activated NFS in FreeNAS and entered the IP address of the TVIX. But I also read somewhere that the TVIX can only use the network ID "tvixhd1". So FreeNAS has to know that the share somehow is set to this ID. Maybe by entering it in the config.xml and uploading it again to the FreeNAS machine.
No, that's "old school" Tvix.
Since a few firmwares backyou can enter any path in the Tvix.
