I have always been using SMB shares, but now that Infuse 5 supports NFS connections I’m wondering if this is faster and more efficient when running simultaneous connections. Also is there any negative to using NFS that I should be aware of (is it un secure like DLNA)??
My setup is:
Infuse 5.3 on (2x) Apple TV 4 / Infuse 5.3 on iPad Air 2 (iOS10)
WD My Cloud EX2 (NAS) for my media library
NAS connected to Gigabit LAN on AirPort Extreme
AirPort Extreme features 802.11ac dualband network, all devices connect on faster 5GHz network
After doing a quick test on my iPad, the NFS shares appear to load a bit faster, but I’m wondering if this is because the NFS connections do not require any login security. Is this bad?
