can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -a /mnt/freenas
WARNING: You are logged into reality as 'root'

logging in as 'insane' is the only safe option.

OK, lets make the shortcuts first:
Code: [Select]
mkdir /home/graeme/Desktop/NAS
then
Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/freenas/family-tree /home/graeme/Desktop/NAS/family-tree
then
Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/freenas/graeme /home/graeme/Desktop/NAS/graeme
then
Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/freenas/movies /home/graeme/Desktop/NAS/movies
then
Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/freenas/multimedia /home/graeme/Desktop/NAS/multimedia
then
Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/freenas/pat /home/graeme/Desktop/NAS/pat
then
Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/freenas/utilities /home/graeme/Desktop/NAS/utilities

then test the shortcut called multimedia in the NAS folder on your desktop .. can you see the files ?

OK, now we're going to add the fstab entries one at a time, so we can test for errors:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/fstab

add a NEW LINE at the bottom that reads:
Code: [Select]
//192.168.2.100/utilities /mnt/freenas/utilities cifs credentials=/home/graeme/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777 0 0

SAVE the file.

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -a

Check the utilities folder (in NAS on desktop) .. can you see the files ?

Check the graeme folder (in NAS on desktop) .. can you see the files ?

BTW, don't get ahead of me, as the family tree mount needs special attention because of the space in the directory name.

OK the "family tree" directory on the freenas box needs special attention .. fstab doesn't like spaces in filenames, so you have to replace them with the special octal character \040 .. so family tree becomes family\040tree

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/fstab

add a NEW LINE at the bottom that reads:
Code: [Select]
//192.168.2.100/family\040tree /mnt/freenas/family-tree cifs credentials=/home/graeme/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777 0 0

SAVE the file.

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -a

Check the family-tree folder (in NAS on desktop) .. can you see the files ?

If this works .. be sure to read my next reply BEFORE rebooting
