Hrmmm - If it were a samba connection, it would say SMB://192....
I'm curious about these drives (if in fact that's what we're talking
about). I've seen WD has a 1Tb IP-Addressable drive as well. But, on
the box it says it has "Windows software" already built on the drive.
I don't know what that has to do with it being IP Addressable, but I"m
wondering if this is a drive, and has a similar setup, NFS might not be
correct, but you may have luck setting it up as SMB (unless of course
you format the drive as ext2, ext3, or some other native Linux format).
That might be worth a try just to see if NFS will then see the drive.
I'd like to see how this turns out, since I'm in the process of setting
up a LAN for my place and want to hang 2 of these 1Tb IP drives from it.
