Long time systems engineer in Windows and Mac OS (over 20 years) in University and small business environments. Dabbled with Linux over the years finally made the decision to take a Linux desktop seriously and chose Zorin over Linux Mint and Pop OS for a variety of reasons.
Anyway...seeing as I paid for the OS I thought I'd give the support forum a go.
I have 5 NAS devices. 2 are Thecus and 3 are QNAP. I can access all of them via Windows via and run AFP on a couple of the QNAP's for the Mac OS machines.
I run SMB 2, 2.1 and 3 as well as AFP on the NAS's.
I've purchased Zorin Pro 16 and in trying to connect to all the NAS's only achieve a successful connection using AFP.
When trying to connect to an SMB share through the "other locations" in the default file manager (I believe it is called nautilus) I get an error and can't connect however with AFP connections the share is accessed immediately which is good. As it should.
I've overcome this shortfall by manually accessing the shares via the full server path eg smb://192.168.x.x/shared which is not desirable but acceptable however I am now trying to figure out how to make the network share permanent/connect at login.
Is there a simple way to do this?
