Buffalo Technology is an American manufacturer of storage devices, including network-attached storage, or NAS. A Buffalo NAS sits on the user's network as a node in its own right; it services requests for reading and writing data as it streams in from computers in the network. You can make your Ubuntu Linux computer detect and use a Buffalo NAS for storage.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Log in to the Ubuntu computer as a regular user.

  2. 2

    Click "Places" on the taskbar at the top of the graphical desktop, then select "Home Folder." Nautilus, Ubuntu's graphical file manager, launches in a separate window.

  3. 3

    Type "smb://" without quotes into the Nautilus address bar. Replace "" by the address of the Buffalo NAS on your local network. Press "Enter." Ubuntu displays all files and folders on the Buffalo NAS.
