Step by step How To use Nabilo Mount Wizard

First a little explanation about CIFS and NFS

CIFS (used by Windows)
Client systems use the CIFS (Common Internet File System) protocol to request file and print services from server systems over a network. It is based on the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.
NFS ( used by Linux Machines )
Network File System (NFS) is a network file system protocol originally developed by Sun Microsystems in 1984, allowing a user on a client computer to access files over a network as easily as if the network devices were attached to its local disks. NFS, like many other protocols, builds on the Open Network Computing Remote Procedure Call (ONC RPC) system.

Now how to setup CIFS and NFS mount point in Nabilo Mount Wizard :

1. Press Blue button twice–> Nabilo Mount Wizard –> OK

2. Using Red or Green buttons select Nfs or Cifs

2.1 Press Red for setup NFS mount point twice

On Server IP address put Your Linux server ( or other Dreambox IP)
On Server share directory put directory name (which one You want to share)
Keep all other fields untouched
Use numeric keys on Your RC for input Letters and Numbers, left-right/up-down for moving in this menu and < (AV) for delete entry
Now press SAVE ( red button)
You will see following


Press Red button againg and if all is Ok You wil see this popup screen

Press Ok-RED button-Blue button(exit)

All is done for NFS now

2.2 Press Green and then Red buttons for setup CIFS mount point

On Server IP address put Your Windows Server IP
On Server share directory put directory name (which one You want to share). Here You need to use name of folder which one You have shared on Your PC!!!!

Keep all other fields untouched
Use numeric keys on Your RC for input Letters and Numbers, left-right/up-down for moving in this menu and < (AV) for delete entry
Now press SAVE ( red button)
You will see following


Press Red button againg and if all is Ok You wil see this popup screen

Press Ok-RED button-Blue button(exit)

All is done for CIFS now

P.S. You cannot use same name /media/net for different mount points.
For mount point with other name You need first to create directory in Your Dreambox f.e. /media/YourPointName
Every point must be unique, but in this case You will see on MediaPlayer menu in Network Mount only /media/net point.
If You have point with other name You can access it from MediaPlayer >> Internal Flash >> media >> YourPointName

P.P.S. If You already have created NFS mount point and want to create Cifs with same point name (or just remove mount point),
You need fist to delete previous mount point from Mount Point wizard menu:

Press Blue button twice–> Nabilo Mount Wizard –> OK –> Mount Editor (yellow button) –> select mount point –> Delete ( yellow button)

You can go to Mediaplayer now and enjoy Your mount point
