I recently set up a FreeNAS storage server that I want to use over the internet, outside of the local network, but the FreeNAS server doesn't seem to want to be found by any other machine on the network. I have a share set up from a storage pool, and the SMB service is running, but I enter the share path properly and nothing is found. What setting enables shares to be found, and how would access the shares from another network that isn't the local?

My current network, diagrammed, if that helps. (The FreeNAS server in question is named "Libra")

  • Your question may be better answered in the appropriate vendors forum: ixsystems.com/community/forums/sharing.20 . 1)Have you referenced their guide: ixsystems.com/documentation/freenas/11.2/… ? While your diagram is helpful, it actually causes more questions than answers: 2)are you authenticating against AD (Windows Server Active Directory)? 3)Have you disabled software firewalls temporarily to see if those are complicating things? – gregg Jun 18 at 21:37
  • Il see if the vendor forum can help, thanks. I am not using any form of AD, and all of my firewalls are set to allow the connection through. – Sgt Quackerton Jun 18 at 21:41
