Can FreeNAS work similar to an NFS Server for WDLXTV Live?   

Postby Modify_inc » Sun Dec 20, 2015 1:55 pm

I’ve been running haneWIN NFS Server on my media server for a while now and using my WDLXTV Live box to connect to it. I use the net.mounts file to mount my NFS Shares. I’ve had no problems with it, my linksheets and other metadata I have acquired through ThumbGEN work great!

Recently, I installed freeNAS and began playing around with it. I created a dataset named Movies-NFS, followed by a share: Movies-NFS. It was at this point I realized I didn’t know how to configure it to work like the haneWIN NFS Server did. With haneWIN NFS Server, I could just edit the export file and provide the path to my existing Window’s Movies folder and it would create a NFS Share. I’m not sure how you do this in freeNAS.

I searched for a guide but had no luck. Is this even possible? Was I naive for even thinking that freeNAS could provide similar features/functions as the haneWIN NFS Server? If this is not possible, is there another alternative?

Thank you
