Question Mounting a NAS device (Synology) so I can read and write files


I have a Synology NAS that I would like to mount as a network-attached drive. I know how to do this in Windows and on the Mac OS, but I have no idea how to do this in Linux. I'm running Ubuntu 17.04. Can someone point me to some instructions or the easiest way to do this? I need to be able to read, write, and execute files. Thanks!

Almost ever SOHO has has a few ways to offer files. You set that in the NAS web configuration. Then you need to direct your linux to it. The most common may be to use samba/cifs. The default share on your server ought to be a public share I'd assume. Some search term for mount samba shares ubuntu should show some tips. Example. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently

Can use file manager also for temp access usually. Some browsers support smb:\\ipaddress

You could try NFS if you don't need Windows to see the drive.

I expect https://help.ubuntu.com/14.04/server...le-system.html might be useful.
