I have the same question really but with a western digital Network Disk........I have found that the "Files" App loaded by default with Fedora21 is able to see the Drive so long as there is a PUBLIC share on it. The File system is NTFS and so assume that it is using SAMBA to load it I think you'll need to edit the fstab file to mount far as I am aware, the drive has to be listed in there to be able to mount it.. I may be wrong..fairly new to Linux after years in It with Windows........ Or have you found the answer ?

Most likely, it sounds as if it is hosting a Samba server. Simply try listing the shares using the hostname or IP address. Eg.:

smbclient --list=easystore


smbclient --list=192.168.#.#

If the above command returns share information, you will be able to connect to those shares. Since your other client is not prompting for Authentication, it sounds like Anonymous shares. Try the following:

[1] Make sure cifs-utils is installed:

yum install cifs-utils

[2] Attempt a manual mount of the share:

mkdir /mnt/easystore-vol1
mount.cifs //easystore/Volume_1 /mnt/easystore-vol1
