Setting up SMB or NFS on mac
#9
I have found that, on Mac, NFS is the best and fastest for remote sources in a local network. To enable nfs on your mac, and start at boot, use Terminal.app to enter (note that sudo command requires an admin password. Press return key after each command):

First do:
Quote:sudo nfsd enable
Then do:
Quote:sudo nfsd start
Then you need to edit your nfs share points, located at /etc/exports. In terminal:
Quote:sudo nano /etc/exports
Edit the file to look something like this:

/Volumes/wd.3tb.1/ -mapall=nobody -alldirs
/Volumes/qwerty.5tb/ -mapall=nobody -alldirs
/Volumes/azerty.7tb/ -mapall=nobody -alldirs
/Volumes/dvorak.8tb/ -mapall=nobody -alldirs

Then press ctl-x to save and exit. Each line represents a different Volume that you want to share. Change the volume names to whatever yours are.

Then in terminal:
Quote:sudo nfsd restart
This will reload nfsd and pickup the new shares you added. If you want, NFSManager is also good GUI front end for managing nfs shares.

In Kodi, on your player device, you can locate the sources at:

nfs://<ip-address-of-mac>/Volume/<HD-Name>

replace <ip-address-of-mac> with your mac's IP address and <HD-Name> with the name of the Volume. You probably also want to enable MAC (different from Mac. lol) based IP reservations on your router, so your iMac always has the same local ip address.
