Create or change the NFS share #

First of all edit your shared folder. Control PanelShared FolderEditNFS PermissionsCreate (or Edit).

path to the settings as mentioned above

Hostname or IP192.168.10.100 (actual IP)
SquashMap all users to admin

Change the user and group ids in /etc/exports #

Now login to the NAS with SSH and open the file /etc/exports as the user root.

The file should look similar to this one:


I have the following users on my NAS:

uid=1024(admin) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),101(administrators)
uid=1026(dominic) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),101(administrators),1000(nfs-dominic)
uid=1000(nfs-dominic) gid=1000(nfs-dominic) groups=1000(nfs-dominic)

Change the parts anonuid=1026,anongid=100 to your needs.

I do have a personal folder that I change to anonuid=1000,anongid=1000 but I leave others (like video) that use anonuid=1026,anongid=100 (because I want the internal user on the NAS to use them too).

Whenever you finished your changes to that file, save it and go back to the control panel on the web interface.
