hello people,
i run freebsd 12 in virtualbox on ubuntu.
on ubuntu my folder from qnap-nas is mounting like this:
first install "nfs-common"
and than write in the /etc/fstab
x.x.x.x:/qnap-folder /home/user1/qnap nfs rw 0 0
when i start my file-explorer in ubuntu, i get automatically the qnap-folder
how can i do this in freebsd?

Pretty much the same way. see what T-Daemon point you at for details.

One thing I found was that I couldn't get proper UID to name resolution working between my FreeBSD server and my QNAP NAS so I had to make sure my UID on the QNAP was the same as my UID on FreeBSD.

I also couldn't get it to work reliably running only NFSv4. I had to enable NFSv3 on the QNAP box. Oddly it still talks NFSv4 (according to network sniffer).

i will test it tomorrow - i don't need much
- mpv player, for me that is better as vlc, because vlc can't play my files from qnap-nas, which are connected by nfs (in my ubuntu 18.04.3).
- file-hostdownloader, like jdownloader
- emailclient
- hp-setup for print and scan-software
if i can realize this things, i would use freebsd instead ubuntu

The Handbook, above, is the place to start.

The thing I most often forget on the NFS server is to restart mountd() after modifying /etc/exports.

Reading the logs on client and server often helps when things aren't going well.

hello all, i did it.
also vlc can open the media files from qnap-nas in freebsd (i don't know why in ubuntu not).
i also have to activate nfs-v3 on my qnap-nas (with ubuntu i use nfs-v4).
now i can continue with the next points.
