Save to NAS ends up as a save to Home!!!


I have a NAS that I can access fine using Ubuntu 15.

The issue I have is that I'm attempting to get Vuze to store downloaded material on the NAS. I have entered the following Directory in Vuze to move completed files after download:
smb://readynas.local/Downloads/

However instead of it saving to the NAS under Downloads it places it on the local drive under:
/home/tim/smb:/readynas.local/Downloads

Where am I going wrong?

Many thanks for any help.
Tim

My suggestion would be to properly mount the nas drive in the /etc/fstab file instead of messing with smb://. I've never had success with that method. Always something random happening.

And if your NAS supports NFS better use it.

Thanks for the reply. How do I 'properly' mount the NAS drive in the /etc/fstab file?

Many thanks.

I don't beleive it does. I can see SMB, AFP & Windows Network as options, but I think Windows network uses SMB.
The NAS is an NETGEAR RN10400-100EUS ReadyNAS.

very true, very true, this is why things such as FUSE exists, because mounts happen at a much lower level in the operating system than smb:// or ftp:// in a file manager/browser

Do you know how I can NFS? Do I just replace SMB://readynas/Downloads with NFS://readynas/Downloads?

Many thanks

I would mount the share when you login assuming that you run Vuze after login too. Add this

Code:
gvfs-mount smb://readynas/Downloads
to your startup applications. This will mount the share here

Code:
/run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share\:server\=readynas\,share\=Downloads/
Then put this directory in Vuze as download destination.
