Hi Everyone, I have Duo2 and wish to link to the router usb hdd. I am able to detect it when doing a network scan but could not detect the usb hdd. Could someone please tell me if there is any possibility of doing this? Thanks

It could be it doesn't advertise its services?

 

You can always create the mount manually.

Can you access the usbhdd (on the router) from a computer?

Have you configure your router to share out a storage share (smb/cifs) or FTP share?

Have you actually configure user&password for the share (this isn't the same as the admin user name and password of the router)?
Isn't it better to use anonymous (guest) access, or do you really need protect the files from others in your house.

Go into the network configuration screen, there you have the network browser it is will search and show you all the available shares then you can easily mount it.

But most provider router only support FAT32 fomatted HDD so you wll have limit of 4GB per file and this can will be problematic if you decide to record on it.

i use a link from my harrddisc which is on my router (Fritzbox) and this works perfect.

First you need a share (here i use samba (cifs) with autofs it looks as following in the file /etc/auto.net;

FRITZNAS	-fstype=cifs,user=xxxx,pass=xxxxxxxx,rw,iocharset=utf8	://192.168.188.1/fritz.nas

(you can edit the /etc/auto.net with a linux compatible editor as notepad++)

that needs to configure a user and password on the router.

the share is then under /media/net with name "FRITZNAS"

 

my movies on this share i have under (complete path);

/media/autofs/FRITZNAS/TOSHIBA_USB3_1/movie

 

and this path i linked with command;

ln -s /media/autofs/FRITZNAS/TOSHIBA_USB3_1/movie /media/hdd/movie/___FritzNas_Videos

in the movie directory from my internal harddisc.

 

autofs isn't installed out of the box in pli, so you need it make also;

opkg update
opkg install autofs

maybe this post can help you, because you can see the setup which it needs.

 

and at last restart your box complete.

 

regards

Pike

OpenPLi doesn't use autofs, so this isn't going to work.

 

You can create the same mount with the mount manager. Possibly, depending on the kernel version on the box, you might have to add

vers=1.0

to the mount options, chances are the Fritz still wants SMBv1.

but here this works with autofs, but you're right for a harddisc on router you didn't need autofs because the router is always on

Do not forget enable ports for samba on router's firewall - TCP+UDP: 137,138,139,445

But in final are used: TCP: 445(M$ sharing), UDP: 137(netbios name service) ,138(netbios datagram service)

 

For better work with autofs (cifs, nfs) you can install ManagerAutofs plugin in feed. More about it is on our wiki.

Please, it isn't recommended to publish fileshares on internet. Also I don't see any questions about sharing movies over internet in this thread. So skip open up stuff in the firewall.

- at least I assume the things we talk about here is local network at home. A home with simple ordinary network setup.
