Fristly,I will show the difference of mount between Windows and Mac Book, and to see what protocol I will use and what I must to do.
1. Operating system: Windows can automatic mount NAS, but it is different with Mac Book. Essentially, the kernel program of Mac Book is Linux, but it is a little different with Linux at some places and it can’t be automatic mount the same as Linux such as SUSE.
2. Network protocol: When windows mount NAS, it’s network protocol is only CIFS, but Mac can support CIFS and NFS at same time. By contrast, NFS is more faster and stability than CIFS, so we chose NFS share to do the mount.
3. Mount point: When windows mount NAS, it need a drive. Mac need a folder in local to do the mount. So the MAC must build a folder before mount.
Secondly, Mac can do the mount in GUI interface. I try it, but find that it will lost some mount points at some time. It is very surprise and I don’t find the reason of this, so I decide to use terminal to do the mount.
