I have an NFS server setup on a Debian no GUI OS hosting my mkv DVD rips. My NFS shared directory is /home/garrett/Vidoes/Movies/ and my NFS line in /etc/exports is -> /home/garrett/Videos/Movies *(rw,sync,subtree_check) The problem is I don’t want the WD TV Live to have write access to my movie files so I’d like to setup a linked system to deal with this problem but I’m not sure on what the best way to go about it is.
Should I setup add a linked directory under /home/garrett/Vidoes/ that sits beside /home/garrett/Videos/Movies and points to /home/garrett/Videos/Movies with it’s permissons set to rwx and while the actual Movies direcotry remains ro?
Or Should I setup another directory under /home/garrett/Videos/ with rwx permissons and have a script auto fill that direcotry with links to the ro contents of /home/garrett/Videos/Movies?
I’ve read where this trick has been done on Linux Samba servers with WD TV Live clients so I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for NFS. Any ideas? Thanks.
