Network File System (NFS) is a distributed file system protocol allowing the NAS to share directories and files with others over a network. Like SMB, NFS grants file-level access to users and programs.

NFS is widely distributed to host VMWare datastores or share network folders in a Linux/UNIX environment.

When enabling the NFS service on a share, it can be accessed with the following path: [NAS NAME or IP ADDRESS]:/shares/SHARE_NAME

The NFS protocol is not active by default. To activate it:

  1. Go to General > Services (see General).
  2. Pass the cursor to the far right of the NFS row and select Edit.
  3. Choose Enable.


Important info: All NFS shares are public and available to everyone on the network.
