I have not tried cifs yet, but runeaudio does not find anything in a test folder with only one .mp3 file.

did you try mounting your NAS on a pc (not rune audio)? At least you can narrow down the problem.

I'm using cifs not NFS from a linux box for file sharing. I've turned off anonymous access (I enter a username/passwd when I mount the fs) and haven't had a problem.

I'd probably try to mount the drive from one of my linux boxes and Windows to make sure I have the path and permissions correct.

If you mount is connected to a linux box, you could make file music files wide open (chmod 777 *) to help with permissions.

I will try to make it work with username and password access. I already have a Linux based player (bluesound) and various computers and ITT devices working with the NAS, so I'm fairly confident that the problem lies at the other end.

Cifs worked perfectly! Indexed in a minute.

Thank you!

Thank you all for this thread, I too had been around this loop several times, but what stopped it working was a silly. In the Synology UI, the references to disk volume are written Volume 1, which being aware of the need for correctness in the path I copied slavishly. And of course it should be volume1. As it happens to make matters worse it does not care about the space (which I noticed early on) but it does care about the capital V (which I didn't).

Hello folks,
I'm very excited to get this running to connect to my new smsl M8A - which already sounds amazing out of my pc.
I am struggling with connecting my RasPi3(b) to my Synology DSM415+.
I have read all the threads related to this and tried MANY of the combinations suggested, but to no avail.
I do have foobar2k and audirvana accessing the NAS without issues.

as ACX suggested:
ls /mnt/MPD/NAS/
does not output anything.

I've set Squash to 'Map all users to admin'
I've changed the daemon user group to root:root and mount flags to nfsvers=3,rw
I've deleted and created the mount multiple times and never been able to get past the red X

I've attached a couple of screenshots to show my config.

Any help really appreciated.

please read this

- try "volume1/music" as Remote directory
- try "Hostname or IP" = *
- try "Hostname or IP" = IP from your PI

Thank your Frank for your reply.
I have followed your suggestions and literally tried all the permutations of these values (see below)
The error I cannot get through now is:
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting

There is nothing special about my NAS setup:
Noting on the advanced options, admin has r/w on permissions, nothing on advanced permissions. NFS permissions has runeaudio as host (* times out), r/w, squash = all users to admin, security=sys, enable async, non-priviledged ports, mount sub-folders.

I can ssh into RPi and into NAS. Ping is disabled, but I can ssh RPi <-> NAS. Unfortunately my tech chops are limited, specially networking/mounts.

Can anyone provide me with some hints????
Thank you.

These are the combinations I tried (I've been working on this 3 nights already :( )

Protocol: NFS
Remote Directory:
Mount Flags:

MPD Config
Daemeon user:group:

Hostname or IP*:
<RPi IP>
Privilege: read/write
no mapping
Map all users to admin
security: sys
allow async/non-privileged ports/sub-folders all checked

Depending on the combination, I either get NFS mount time out or permission denied.
