How to use unraid mount tag in pfsense vm



  • I have pfsense running as a VM on unraid. In order to transfer files to it, I would like to mount a directory from the host inside the vm but nothing I've tried works.

    I've tried nfs, smbfs and cifs (all in fstab) but nothing. How can this be done?

    I've never seen such a thing work with pfSense and a VM host.

    pfSense doesn't include the binaries to mount smb/cifs, I don't think nfs is there either (client or server).

    Are you trying to copy from the VM host to pfSense, or from pfSense to the VM host? Why not use scp/rsync? The VM host may be able to use ssh as a filesystem, connecting to pfSense. But that wouldn't work the other way.
