I want to connect to Fritz NAS over smb protocol. In Ubuntu it is easy.

Menu > File > Connect to server > "smb://fritz.box" 

Then username and password.

And I am in.

How to do it with elementary OS?

  • I am not familiar with Fritz NAS, but connection with smb servers is possible using the "Connect to Server" option in the sidebar. For smb choose "Windows Share". Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 18:42
  • Can you see the server in the "Entire Network" view? Commented Apr 17, 2018 at 18:43

I have a Fritz!box and I didn't use the NAS, until now.

This is how I got into the NAS today. Just click on "Entire Network".


Open the FRITZ-NAS, and a "Wifi"-icon appears.

Wireless Icon of Fritz-NAS

And when you open this, a dialog box appears and you can fill in your credentials. These are the credentials you gave in the setup of MyFritz.

Dialog for credentials

After login, your files on the NAS appear.
