Secure network connection from a Workstation to a Vero 4K

I have files on my workstation which I wish to view in another room and plan to use a Vero 4K as the receiver and renderer.

The simplest way for me to make files available would be using nfsV4 server but can the Vero 4K run an NFSV4 client?

Any other suggestions which might be suitable. I specified because I do not want these files broadcast all over our network but just between specific people, once they are logged in.

Yes - Vero can connect to NFS shares without issue


Hi Sam,
I wish it were that simple. I have enabled NFSv4 on server and the Vero client and have added ‘insecure’ to my server configuration on advice concerning using V4. My exports line is:-

alastair@HP-Z640-1:/etc> cat exports

I had assumed that the client would mount using fstab but no, so how do I configure the Vero 4K client please?


Do you get an error message when the mount fails?

Regards Tom.

Hi Tom,
I didn’t try and mount as I had the message and all my mounts are hashed out:-

# rootfs is not mounted in fstab as we do it via initramfs. Uncomment for remount (slower boot)
#/dev/vero-nand/root  /    ext4      defaults,noatime    0   0
# UUID=64A5-F009 /mnt/alastair exfat rw,users,uid=1000,dmask=000,fmask=000,nofail 0 0
# /mnt/Multimedia   nfs   noauto,x-systemd.automount  0  0

I had been trying to mount using the remote control until now but the nfs server for the relevant system is not shown. I can ping each way between machines and I am seeking help now my attempts have failed and thought cli route might be better so I can see what I am (not) doing!

I really do not know enough about firewall and have not configured any specific ports but have protocols dhcpv6-client, mountd, nfs, rpc-bind and ssh enabled.

I have three other nfs client connections showing although only one is being used at present.


I suggest giving this a read:-

The client sections, should give you the information you need.

Regards Tom.

Hi Tom,
Having read your excellent suggestions, for which many thanks indeed, I was able to auto mount using autofs and everything is working as planned. I note that autofs had already been installed in this Vero system.

I have no idea why I could not succeed in getting nfs connection to work simply using the remote and Kodi interface and wonder if it was because I already had autofs installed, but what I have now is working very well and of course I can select and play using remote as usual.
Many thanks again.
