I’m in the process of migrating my desktop to QubesOS. I’ve watched the project from the sidelines for several years and have really been impressed, it’s time for me to dive in.
I’ve read through the relevant documentation and discussions that I have found, and am a bit hazy on a few points. I’ll try not to waste the communities time with my beginner questions any more than I have to, but I’d appreciate some input. For reference I am experienced with Linux and networking, not with Qubes.
I have a NAS on my LAN, that’s hosts my files, I currently have them mounted with NFS on several systems and would like to access certain shares in some of the Qubes, and other shares in other Qubes (I suspect NFS is best, but open to other options)
For instance a “Media” Qube that can access the videos and photo share and a “Financial” Qube that can access a share with financial documents.
Should I mount these inside the Template OS? Or can I isolate that connection in a block device(s?) that I allow only the designated Qubes access to the assigned shares.
What approach is recommended, or have I misunderstood some concept?
