Hi everyone,

on my linux machine (Mageia) I would like one user (let's say, user1) to be able to access one directory on the NAS (DS220j).

This directory should be mountable by user1.

Do I need to define a user named user1 on the NAS (in DSM) ?

Or shall I create another user (e.g. user1_NAS) on the NAS control panel and use these credentials to allow user1 to access the directory ?

Basically I want only user1 to see and be able to access the directory on the NAS...

Thanks !!!
