I'm doing that now. I also found out that I cant mount into a directory, only directly to a mount point. Something that was very clearly described in the handbook.

However, I have a samba share on the same server, it's sharing exactly the directory I want to have access to from my freeBSD client. Is it a better way to go via SAMBA then, compared to share everything?

Are there any other ways to solve this?
