I am copying files between a QNAP TS-109 and a Synology 110j – other NAS models should work pretty much the same way. On both systems there is a user called “admin” which i am using for all of the below.
- Enable CLI (ssh or telnet) on both systems and lookup their IP adresses (using the “ifconfig” command)
- Enable NFS server on the target system (Synology in my case)
- Modify the “/etc/exports” file on the target NAS to include a line with the directory you want to share over NFS:
<PATH> <CLIENT IP>(rw,no_root_squash)
- Run “exportfs -ra” to refresh the NFS export list.
- On the client NAS (QNAP in my case), login to a shell and mount the NFS share
mount -t nfs <SERVER IP>:/<PATH> <MOUNT POINT>
mount -t nfs 192.168.1.10:/volume1 /mnt
Make sure that the <MOUNT POINT> is an existing directory.
DONE. Now you can just cd into the respective directories and copy files.
