Well, I'm almost there. I have finally managed to get my NAS up and running thanks to you awesome people.
The last thing I need is to do, is to connect my Raspberry Pi to my NAS so that I can play all of my media.
The questions is how ?
I'm using a Raspberry Pi (Raspbmc version) and and Synology NAS (DS-410-J)
I'm having trouble getting my Raspi to talk to the NAS.
I have created a new user on the NAS (called "pi")
I've created a mount point for the NAS in the FSTAB of the Raspi.
I've added the IP address and hostname of the Raspi to the hosts file on the NAS
I've added the IP addresses and the hostname of the Raspi to the "hosts.allow" file
on the NAS
I'm getting the error message
"could not connect to network server" from the Ras Pi/XBMC
What do I need to do, in order to get my Raspi/raspbmc to connect to my NAS and display/play my media ?
DE = KDE
Cable modem/router (downstairs)
Raspberry Pi connected to modem/router via ethernet (downstairs)
Cat cable run upstairs to switch (upstairs in office)
PCs and NAS connected to switch (upstairs in office)
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
