Additional Information:

For Ubuntu or other versions of Linux not using graphical interfaces, the mount command can be used to mount a share:
mount blackarmor:/public /shares

Where blackarmor is the name of the server and public is the name of the share on the BlackArmor NAS and /shares is the local folder where the share will be mounted. .

Note: The folder used in the place of shares folder must exist on the local machine for this to work.
