RemoteMount Doesn't Work

  • Every time i try to use the RemoteMount plugin, it throw errors and won't add the shared folder on my Windows 10 PC.

    Remote PC:
    Folder name: tv_new
    Permissions: Everyone = Full Control


  • I don't know if you wrote the details correctly. IP, workgroup, user and password and so on. I will not help you debug that.

    But I suspect that you need to reboot your NAS for it to connect. Or possibly run a command like

    sudo mount -a

    Because this having to reboot, I don't use the remote mount plugin. Instead I use autofs, but with nfs.

    I would recommend that you don't try to share a folder on your win10 computer, unless it is used as a server and is on 24/7. Instead connect from the win10 computer, when needed, to a share on the NAS.

    Or learn how to use SMB with autofs on OMV. Should be a good option, but I never tried it. However I suspect that it requires quite a bit of experimenting. I spent quite some time getting autofs with nfs to work perfectly, and autofs with SMB is very different.

    Be smart - be lazy. Clone your rootfs.
