I was just looking at the option under Network Setting ‘Linux Share (NFS) Support - on/off’ What is this option all about? I curerntly use samba to allow the WD TV Live to see my videos as if they were on Windows so how would or could this option improve anything? And apart from a samba share I’ve never heard of a shared directory in Linux, I’ve only used rwx permissions. Thanks.

you must be very new to linux then
linux has far more ways to share files than windows does
samba is actually a windows share, and the protocol was later implemented in linux as what we now know as cifs/smb
native linux file sharing uses NFS (Network File System)
and yes it will be much more stable than samba and throughput is a lot better
I’ve been using Linux for a while but I’ve jsut always used samba for sharing to devices that expect a Window$ network. Thanks, I would love to deal with something other than samba.
