A network file system is any computer file system that supports sharing of files, printers and other resources as persistent storage over a computer network. Commonly used with DD-WRT is:

  • Samba is the Microsoft Windows default network file system.
  • NFS is the most commonly used Unix/Linux network file system.
  • Sshfs is a simple network file system, useable in all OSes, using SSH.
  • Running an FTP server, such as ProFTPd can also be the basis of a primitive network file system, as the FTP server can be mounted locally, e.g. using curlftpfs in Linux.
