Smile Accessing External HDD (NAS) In Kali Linux


Hi there,

I have Kali Linux installed (even though i am a complete novice) and i am kind of overwhelmed by the amount of information out there regarding Linux, so much so that i have become a little lost.

Here is my problem:

I have a router downstairs, i have attached an external HDD (NAS) BUFFALO LS-500GL via Ethernet.

What i am trying to do is access that drive from my Linux machine. im sorry i am a novice to Linux and cant seem to find exact instructions on how this is achieved.

I would really appreciate idiot proof instructions (either here or an external site) on how to get this sorted.

The reason for it is once i figure it out on my Kali machine i will be u sing my RPI to create a music player using this device.

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Mark

I really don't think that Kali is a good choice to 'create a music player' as it was designed specifically and only for the purpose of penetration testing and computer forensics. Their site below gives details. Note near the top of the page where it says network services disabled by default.

Kali is however built on Debian, may I suggest for a cutting edge idea: https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/u...y-live-builds/

Plus the fact that the Kali dev team specifically states that it is not for use by beginner/novice Linux users. It's for experienced penetration testers only.

If Linux distros were vehicles, the standard Debian, RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, OpenSUSE, etc. distros would be your cars, SUVs, and trucks, while Kali would be an airplane tug. A very useful tool for a very specific purpose, that is completely unsuitable for general purpose use, especially by people who don't know what they're doing.
