Did you try #21 ?
I got this to work after a fashion! Brilliant! Many thanksOn the Synology
* NFS should be enabled via File Services
* On Shared Folders, select a folder and click on Edit
* Go to NFS Permissions and select create using the following
Hostname or IP = *
Privilege = Read/Write
Squash = Map all users to Admin
Security = sys
Enable asynchronous = yes
Allow connections from non-privileged ports = yes
Allow users to access mounted sub folders = yes
NFS address of folder would be IP of the NAS like example below (is also case sensitive), no user/pass should be necessary. All Synology folders are volume1 based unless you have more than one volume on your NAS.
Name: [just entered NAS]
Server: entered the ip address of my NAS
If that don't work then I dont know what else you can do must be Dune NFS specific.
Doing only this did not resolve it. I had to also do this ->I am resolved enable SMB in my Windows 10
Step 1. Open Control Panel in your PC/Notebook.
Step 2. Click on Programs.
Step 3. Click on Turn Windows features on or off link.
Step 4. Expand the SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support option.
Step 5. Check the SMB 1.0/CIFS Client option.
Step 6. Click the OK button.
Step 7. Click the Restart now button.
If any one who contributed to this earlier discussion is still around to deliver some patient advice then I would very much appreciate your help. If those with the issues managed to resolve the connection problem then I would like to know how you did it.
It's entirely possible that I have incorrectly configured something on the NAS as I am new to this.
Are you using SMB or NFS shares ?
NFS shares require the server have a fixed IP address as a dynamic IP will eventually cause the IP to jump to something else, this will in turn break the IP NFS share the Dune is looking for.
On the Synology
option 1 - login to your router and see if it has a bind IP to MAC address option, basically this device will always have this IP even with a DHCP IP server active.
option 2 - make a note of the range of your routers DHCP server or change it for example;
192.168.1.10 up to 192.168.1.256
That leaves the IP range of 2-10 available for static IP's so go into the Synology network settings and set the IP to a fixed setting of for example 192.168.1.4
Now copy the settings from pictures attached
1 turn on nfs
2 go to shared folder and select edit
3 go to NFS permissions
4 copy settings in picture
Now go to the Dune
Name: your NAS
Server: your NAS IP (e.g. 192.168.1.4)
Folder: /volume1/video (the /video is the name of the folder you set the NFS permissions on)
See if that works.
under Sources, Network Browser, Network Places, Workgroup I can see DS920plus on my network but I can't connect as I get 'Network Resource Is Not Accessible - You might not have access permission'. guest doesn't work.
however, under Sources I had created a new network folder (called NAS), as per your instructions and I can access my shares on the NAS from this. These are all in folder view.
I also created another folder using smb (called smbnas) but this does not work. I get 'Cannot access network folder'. This does not matter as I will be deleting this anyway if the NFS route works for me.
I placed the zappiti folder from my NAS under favourites alongside the zappitidune shortcut. However this does not work as it is attempting to link to my NAS using smb.
Therefore I am currently restricted to accessing my NAS without a movie wall via the network folder under Sources.
This is Windows SMB, the Synology NAS runs samba an open source copy of SMB but it can be quite temperamental in getting them to see each other at times.
Go to File Services->SMB->Advanced Settings and tick the box for "local master browser", then reboot your PC, this gives the NAS more of a say in SMB network management. Minimum SMB protocol should be SMB2 in same area.
Under the File Services->Advanced tab make sure that WS-Discovery is also enabled.
If you have not done so create a user account specific to you that is a member of the admin privileges group (do not use default admin account).
Go to shared folder->edit->permissions and make sure your user account has read/write privileges on the folders you want to share.
Now try accessing the NAS via Windows explorer, if it works input your new synology user/pass.
If it doesn't work run the windows Synology assistant and click on its map drive function, this will force a map shared folder to windows bypassing the windows explorer.
Windows sadly does not support NFS (at least its super complex to setup).
This is the NFS connection, good to hear it works at least.
The Dune probably uses SMB v1.0 this has been discontinued by Windows because it is a huge security risk. This is why the NAS defaults to SMB v2.0 being the minimum version.
Unfortunately I have no experience at all with Zappiti, someone else will have to help or try contacting their support.
You could turn back on SMB 1.0 support on the NAS in the minimum supported protocol section and see if it works but that's your call.
I am getting out of my depth now. I will continue digging but for the time being I will revert to using my HDD in the media player and find other uses for the NAS.
Many thanks for your previous advice.
Tomorrow I will reverse the changes you suggested in you last post and see if my Dune reappears in my network.
Apologies I misinterpreted your first part you were talking about the Dune accessing the SMB shares not Windows, that's what my suggestions were about.
This should hopefully correct things.
Login to the NAS via Synology assistant connect then
* Go to File Services->SMB->Advanced Settings and disable "local master browser"
Now reboot then NAS then reboot your PC and power cycle the Dune, that should put you back to were you were.
Yeah that is unusual, if the SMB shares were working on Windows 10 then the Dune has SMB 2.0 support at least so it should be working with the PC and NAS.
Try powering down NAS, PC, Dune and then router, now power on router first, then Dune then NAS and lastly PC, see if that does anything.
SMB has this crazy election system were one device gets to organize connections, the master browser setting I suggested made the NAS mayor of SMB town but clearly the others did not like it.
You also might want to try alternative methods to map the Dune SMB share to windows like this or this.
As for the Dune to NAS SMB connection the only thing I can suggest is remove the existing SMB share you added on the Dune and re-add it as new one with a user/pass implemented in the settings for adding the share on the Dune.
FYI if ever moving away from Dune/zappiti the OSMC Vero 4K runs a modded version of Kodi called OSMC, it handles most things you can throw at it up to 4K HDR, supports NFS shares too.
Kodi has a built in media library that can scan/read VIDEO_TS and BDMV folders, no need to re-rip everything, its pretty automatic and you can opt to save the metadata directly into the folders instead so any Kodi install can read that data during media scan.
