How do I access my NAS in dolphin
« on: November 17, 2020, 09:52:38 pm »
I have recently bought a Synology NAS DS3617XS and would like to access it through Dolphin file browser.
How do I make this possible as I have no idea...

I also want to be able to write to my NAS, as at the moment, I am unable to save anything to it unless I connect an external Hard Drive to it and transfer what files I want to move. Also, I want certain programs to have access to my NAS.

I'm running Kubuntu 18.04
TIA

Hi, I think there are multiple methods depending on how you want to work, but in Dolphin;
  • Open Dolphin, select "Network" from the left hand menu / column
  • Double click on "Add network folder" icon in the main pane
  • Select your access method, FTP/NFS/SSH should work for you if they're enabled on the NAS
With NFS, you may need to mount the drive "before" trying to access it via Dolphin.
