Mounting DNS-323 Drive in linux

March 20, 2011

When you are working on multiple platform then you should much have common storage area which is accessible from windows as well as linux. If you have network drive then you can mount device in linux system. I have D-link’s DNS323 NAS server which you can mount in linux using below commands

Mapping DNA-323 drive on linux:

1. Login as root

2. Use below command to mount NAS drive at /home/elinux/NAS

mount -t cifs // /home/elinux/NAS -o guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,nobrl,noserverino

IP address of my NAS server is: and Network drive Label is Volume_1

After this command you can access all files on this drive at /home/elinux/NAS location

3. You won’t see this mapped drive after linux system is rebooted, so edit /etc/fstab and add below line

// /home/elinux/NAS cifs guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0

This will automatically mount network drive after reboot.
