    How to mount a remote file system from FreeNAS?

    I have a FreeNAS and I need to mount file systems on Linux or Windows while I am logging in to the system. I mean the file system is the same for both operating systems. Is it possible with NAS? Do I have to use another technology?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    It probably has support for the CIFS file system (Samba on Linux systems). Windows can mount them just like a Windows share. Linux can mount them with the mount option "-t cifs". I used to do that with my Buffalo NAS. You will need to read the FreeNAS to see what is required, but I'm sure it is possible.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Tnaks for answering! I still have not read the documentation totally, I hope to find the solution. I need the home to be shared for both OS. So when I log in to the system, mount the remote drive in the client.
