Access NAS

I need to be find where to mount my NAS drive. There is no "Other Locations" visible to me?

I am a noob to Zorin. I remember bits and pieces from Mint?

In Thunar, you do not need to mess with the "Other locations" and "Computer" run-around.

Just bap the up arrow Icon on the toolbar twice to reach Root.

Thanx Turtle. It is installed and I have attempted to access 192.168.1.3 with each of the alternatives like ftp:// etc. but they all fail. I'll keep on looking.

I don't understand that action - tried it but no result?

I am able to do http://192.168.1.3/ and I get the GUI for the NAS drive. That's using a browser. Is there a sudo process I can mount the NAS with, step by step?

You should not be using absolute addresses (IP address) unless you have configured your router and DHCP to reserve that IP and only assign it to the NAS.

When configuring your NAS you should have been asked to name it, that name will work just as well as the IP address and even if the IP address changes, it will still find the correct device

Its name in Zorin network icon is dlink-02F358
It maybe a legacy SMB type? Windows finds dlink-02F358
It is in windows10 = Volume_1 (dlink-02F358) (Z:)

No resolution to the problem yet.

This worked for me:

Thank you Moon, got into it. I see no other parameters for NFS in my NAS (DLink DNS-327L) apart from enable/disable. Maybe I should poke around in the system to see setup somewhere. I have done the following sudo in terminal which I am going to attach hopefully? Negative attachment found, will try copy/paste here:

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 LINUX1
192.168.1.3 Volume_1
mkdir /192.168.1.3 dlink-02F358
mkdir /192.168.1.3/dlink-02F358/test_Volume_1
sudo apt install nfs-common
dlink-02F358:/Volume_1/test-folder /192.168.1.3/dlink-02F358/test-folder nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,tim
sudo mount -a

Trying to load from NFS: result = no mount for device?

I am still working on this obscurity?

The SMB legacy is not responsive from the NAS. I have to buy an updated NAS hardware unit and swap drives across. Please delete the job as unsolved.
