NFS Shares on NAS not mounting.....

Post by cranksv477 » Fri Apr 20, 2018 7:38 pm

Hi All,

This is my first post here and I ask that you have some patience with me as the terms I use may not be 'technical'. I am still learning about Mint 18.3. I run a dual boot pc with Mint & Win10.

What I want is for my NAS shared folders to be mounted and bookmarked so that I can access them when using GMail attach file action....as seen in below screen shot...
Add attachment GMail.png
I was able to browse the NAS folders but now they folders are empty - I can view all folders this way on my Win10 partition.

To mount the folders I added these lines to my /etc/rc.local, then bookmarked them in file manager.

mount -t nfs 192.168.1.88:/@realty /mnt/qnap/@realty
mount -t nfs 192.168.1.88:/Craig /mnt/qnap/Craig

As I said this is not working now...

Any help appreciated.

In a terminal, try:

sudo mount -o vers=3 192.168.1.88:/Craig /mnt/qnap/Craig
