Gparted Boot CD Questions

Ok, So I'm a computer repair technician who is just now learning the benefits of the GParted Environment which has saved my bacon with tools like DDrescue and the built-in partition tool which is wonderful. I have some questions:

1) My shop is on a network, and I want to be able to connect to our network attached storage. If it has an IP address of

a) How do I map our NAS to a folder that I can copy to and from as needed. What commands do I use to acomplish this?

Thanks in advance.

You will have to provide more detail, there are a number of NAS products in the market, with different OSs and options.

Look for SMB (Samba) or NFS (Network File System) sharing. These are supported network access platforms from a Linux infrastructure point of view. You will then open a terminal window (or switch to console) in Gparted, and mount the NAS shared drive somewhere locally, the basic command would be: mount /local/folder/where/to/mount

I kind of like using ftp.

You don't really need to map using a live cd. The steps needed are the same. Almost all nas has a ftp server and you set it for it's users and size.

From command line you can use ftp or ftp then use open or use ftp username@

Then you can use get and put commands.

The term for map tends to be a mount of some sort. So one might mount a share as nfs or mount a samba/cifs share.

Other tools for ftp would be to use nc or netcat to dd to a ftp server.
I think you directly dd to ftp but I have never done that.

g4u is a simple backup to send to ftp.

Pretty sure other tools like clonezilla and partimage can be set to use ftp.

Ftp is a neat way to use gpxe to boot from too so an image on your server could be used and maybe images could exist to choose from.
