Title: Saving to Network Storage (NFS)
Post by: mtrovato on April 11, 2022, 11:28:35 AM
Hi all,

I am using a Chronos 2.1-HD High Speed Camera. I followed instructions in https://www.krontech.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Network-Control-v0.6.5-1.pdf and, when connecting my computer with an ethernet cable, I have access to the camera via the assigned IP. However, I donít know how to save the footage over the network via NFS protocol. In page 29-30 of the manual (https://www.krontech.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/RE-PDEV-10009-Chronos-User-Manual-Full-Software-Version-0.7.0.pdf) it is stated that step-by-step instructions are given in https://www.krontech.ca , but I have failed to find them. Can you please help?

Also notice that I can successfully share files between two laptops via NFS

Thanks
Best,
Marco

I have absolutely no experience with Sharing Folders / Storage for this Camera or File Transfer over Network, but the closest thing i could find from a ~2 Minute Search on the Website is this:

 I hope this helps, else somebody else Please Help.

There are also these Forum Posts / Threads, which one off is still on a pretty dated Firmware version, and both seem to use Some Linux OS, from flying over it very quickly. But maybe you can get some information out of there, or if not send a Personal Message to anyone in there, that got it to work aparently.

I have done exactly what is in the first link and I didn't suceed to establish the connection. I will try it again and, if not successful, send a PM to gcp5017, who seems to have succeeded.
I haven't tried SMB but that is definitely another option.
I will keep you posted.
Thanks

I have connected the camera and my desktop through a router and the NFS share works perfectly . Let me share what I have so others may benefit from this thread.

- Host: laptop with centos7

ifconfig [network] [192.168.0.XXX] netmask 255.255.255.0
followed server instructions in https://www.howtoforge.com/nfs-server-and-client-on-centos-7 . Among other things I have created shared dir /dir

- Client: Chronos Camera 2.1

Utils -> Network -> NFS Network Storage
Address: 192.168.0.XXX
Mount: /dir

Test and Apply

Thanks for your help
Best,
Marco

I've been unable to make this work, as the NFS server here requires authentication.  Is there any config in the Chronos to set that up?

normally in Linux you enter the authentication directly in address field for address in format: user:password@192.168.0.xxx
I have never tested it on chronos, but it is worth of trying
