Friends,
I have a K.Connect 8.01 on a Virtual Appliance (running on a linux debian.)
I am familiar with the settings for "Archive" and "Backup"


My specific problem is that I see the share of the NAS from my environment Windowws by:
\\MyNAS\share_folder or \\192.168.1.10\share_folder

But I can not see my NAS (share) from the Web management K.Connect indicates that the route is invalid (archive or backup), I can only select (view) own Operating System folders

Maybe it's something I need to do in Linux, so I thank anyone who can tell me what I should do and how.

Backup can use UNC path only when the server is running on Windows. Otherwise only local path can be used.
Archiving can use only local paths on all systems.

BTW: Samba sharing should not be used in any case due to possible performance issues and unreliability.

Dear Pavel,
Thanks for the advice of Samba, but I have no answer for how to visualize the storage unit from my Kerio Connect, as if it were part of the root directory.
I would appreciate assistance with this issue, as I see many questions related to the subject without any solution.

You need to first mount the remote location to the linux file system. Here are some instructions http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/how-to-mount-remote-windows-pa rtition-windows-share-under-linux.html
In Kerio Connect you would direct your backups to the local mount point.

As indicated by Pavel, this method is not as reliable as directly attached storage. You are also running an old version of Kerio Connect. I advise upgrading.
