Mount Remote Folder CIFS

Postby adriancrowson » Sun Sep 24, 2017 9:19 am

Hi. Not sure if i am doing something wrong? I cannot mount a remote folder to a Win 10 Pro share. Tried it with a Mac and all is ok.

Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

Many thanks

A bit more info on the setup? Error messages? Have you enabled SMB file service on DSM side? Tried different versions of smb protocol?

Win 10 PC has a share “F”. I am trying to connect and get this error

“Failed to connect to the remote folder. Please make sure the remote server is accessible via CIFS protocol”


I have SMB max 3 and min 1 configured on the NAS.

I also tried mounting as NFS. No joy.

All works ok if I try it to my MAC

You are a bit all over the place. Mixing protocols and what not. Do you want nfs or smb/cifs connection? Also what protocol are you using to access it on your mac? Afp or smb?
