Mapping to a QNAP NAS

Hi all,

I have a question (obviously :-) ). I am running Mint 18, on an Acer Aspire r7-572 with 8GB RAM, a 250GB eSATA as the boot drive and a 500GB 2.5 SATA drive as secondary. I am trying to map to my QNAP TS 421 such that I can see everything from the root down.
Now I can map to individual folders and see them, but what I want is to have a mapped drive such that I can see all folders on the NAS.

Is this possible? Bearing in mind I am a newbie.

If I haven't explained myself well enough, please give me a shout.

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

Most would consider sharing root (or c a bad practice. By enabling ssh you can access the operating system directories but they are not available to the entire network.

No you can only share out "shared folders" which are under /mnt/volume/ or some path like that with that nas.

Aye, I see what you mean, but I didn't quite mean what I said lol, or at least I hadn't thought it through far enough, what I'd like to be able to do, is to see all the shared folders in a one'er, and as eric2282 implies, I will have to find out where those folders are shared under.

Thanks guys, You've lead down another path I need to look into :-).
