NFS Client on Raspberry Pi

Mount folders on NAS

My goal is to share folders that are on my NAS which hostname is chezak.local and IP is So first:

  • create a pi user/group on the NAS with the sames uids as on the pi: 1000/1000
  • setup NFS permissions on shared directories on the NAS via the web interface

It seems that rpcbin is a necessary dependency:

$ sudo apt-get install rpcbind
$ sudo update-rc.d rpcbind enable
$ sudo /etc/init.d/rpcbind start

Create folders:

$ sudo mkdir /mnt/incoming
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/music
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/video

Mount folders:

$ sudo mount chezak.local:/volume1/incoming /mnt/incoming
$ sudo mount chezak.local:/volume1/music /mnt/music
$ sudo mount chezak.local:/volume1/video /mnt/video


$ showmount -e chezak.local

Persist mounts:

$ sudo emacs /etc/fstab

Add those lines: /mnt/incoming nfs rw,hard,intr 0 0 /mnt/music nfs ro,hard,intr 0 0 /mnt/video nfs ro,hard,intr 0 0

Mount folder on Freebox v6

First, enable windows share on freebox with user/pass and CHEZAK workgroup.

Freebox's hostname is


$ smbclient -L -N | grep "Disk" | cut -c -17

Create folder:

$ sudo mkdir /mnt/freebox

Setup mount:

$ sudo emacs /etc/fstab

Add that line:

//\040dur /mnt/freebox cifs _netdev,rw,users,iocharset=utf8,user=freebox,password=PASSWORD, uid=1000,sec=none,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
