How I mount my Synology NAS shared folders as NFS

I have configured my Synology NAS to use NFS4 and NFSv4.1. For certain fixed IP addresses, I have allowed passwordless mounting of specific NFS shares:

This is my mount line in /etc/fstab /mnt/myfolder nfs async,soft,auto 0 0


  • is the IP address of the NAS in the VPN
  • myfolder is the name of the Synology share

This configuraton has been verified to work even when connecting via an OpenVPN connection that connects to a DSL client with an IP address that changes every 24 hours, leading to a disconnect of about 30 seconds. However, you should still test it in your specific configuration.
