The CIFS mounts in tomato are great, however I would love to be able to use NFS instead. It just seems to make more sense when connecting to a linux-based NAS.
here you find nfs-utils package and you need nfs modules (find in extras.tar.gz)
As expected build 54's nfs kernel module cannot be loaded, kernel log shows a bunch of linking errors :
nfs: Unknown symbol rpc_put_task nfs: Unknown symbol nlmclnt_proc nfs: Unknown symbol rpc_proc_register ... nfs: Unknown symbol xdr_shift_buf
I'm not looking for a kernel NFS server in tomato, as it has already been been requested in many other threads, but simply for the router to act as a NFS *client*.
In the current state this is what it does :
root@tomato:/tmp/home/root# mount -t nfs 192.168.1.2:/nfs/tomato /opt/ mount: mounting 192.168.1.2:/nfs/tomato on /opt/ failed: No such device root@tomato:/tmp/home/root# cat /proc/filesystems nodev sysfs nodev rootfs nodev bdev nodev proc nodev sockfs nodev pipefs nodev anon_inodefs nodev tmpfs nodev inotifyfs nodev configfs nodev devpts squashfs nodev ramfs nodev usbfs ext3 ext2 vfat jffs2 nodev cifs
It's probably just a matter of compiling the nfs kernel module and adding support in busybox's mount command.
tomato with nfs
I tested only nfs server. Can you test mount.nfs tool and mount some nfs share? Feedback welcome.
Is there a sub-8M K26 R2 build with HFS+, VPN, Samba, and NFS in the GUI? (I'm using a 3500L v1.)
I flashed the Big-VPN 101 build, but it was lacking the HFS+. That was the only build I saw that supposedly supported HFS and NFS that would fit on the router's 8M RAM. Was this supported on an older build of Big-VPN?
I'm now using the BtGui-VPN 101 build, but my Macs can only read (and not write) the Samba shares on the HFS+ drive attached to the router. I would love to try NFS since this is probably an OSX issue with Samba.
Or is there an alternative to NFS sharing implemented in BTGui-VPN that is read/write share capable in OSX Lion/Mt Lion? In an earlier DD-WRT BIG flash, I was able to read/write to a Samba shared FAT thumb drive through Finder. Possibly I used SSH/FTP, but I can't remember how it was done.
Thanks for the excellent firmware, Shibby!
