How can you release NAS Hard drives for I2Psnark?

Post by Dr.Doom »

Hi I2P Users,
i would like to release my NAS Hard drives in a Synology-NAS under Arch with KDE-Plasma for i2psnark.
The NAS hard drives are all successfully integrated in the KDE-Filemanager Dolphin. This is also carried out by successful reading and writing access.
A password input is also no longer necessary under KDE-Dolphin to access the NAS hard drives.

But if I want to release the NAS festival plants in I2PSNARK, the message appears in I2PSNARK:
Data directory must be an absolute path: SMB: // NAS/files/i2psnark

Can you hang HDDs from NAS systems in I2PSNARK?
Thank you.

SMB is a protocol like NFS in the Linux world. Your data storage devices on the NAS are connected to a real directory via "mount" for example. This way, normal programs like Snark can access them transparently. The Dolphin file manager also follows this policy. Additionally, the mounted directories can be bound to other directories using "mount [r]bind". Assuming your NAS is mounted at "/srv/synology-nas", this directory or a subdirectory of it can be mounted directly to "$HOME/torrents/snark/" using "mount bind". Add the tested configuration to "/etc/fstab", if necessary with the option "noauto,user". And don't forget to check the access rights.

Since you are using Arch, this is the relevant part: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Samba#Client

short:

install cifs-utils

test manual mounting: mount --mkdir -t cifs //SERVER/sharename ...

if working, section "As mount entry" - put it into /etc/fstab
