Mapped NFS Shares Freeze NEMO

Post by swormuth » Tue Jul 24, 2018 5:55 pm

This has been persistent across multiple versions of FreeNAS and Linux Mint, and I don't know where the bug exists. I have multiple laptops and desktops running multiple versions of Mint, and I have them all map NFS shares hosted on FreeNAS at boot using FSTAB. If I connect to a VPN service in any way, the Linux Mint file browser (Nemo) and the desktop become unresponsive. I can't open a file on the desktop, or open a folder. It will freeze the machine requiring a hard reboot.

If I comment out the FreeNAS mappings in FSTAB and reboot, I can use a VPN just fine, and browse folders and interact with the desktop. I have tried multiple VPN service providers and different VPN apps. I setup a VPN network in PFSENSE to route all traffic without any client on the local machine at all, still locks up. But it only locks up if I have a share mapped to FreeNAS.

Obviously, this makes a VPN useless. I simply can't use it either with an app or through a router with VPN running.

So where to begin?
