So, I finally got this to work, took WAY too long for such a simple operation.
This should be documented FIRST, BEFORE going OFF into other detailed operations.

Anywho, here is my simple stup, I don't know how "official", or if it conforms to recommended setup, or not.
I would like comments if you have any.

ALL the adapters have the same IP.

Making it too complicated. Install VM OS (i.e. Windows) connect to NFS/SMB share in Windows. Share is hosted on NAS.

Oh believe me, I tried to do this, as I thought that is how it should work.
But it did not, this was the only way I could see the NAS share.

I have another VM to load, so, I will try again.
I am awaiting two 32MB Samsung SODIMMS first...

Could this be because I have two computers connected to the NAS, TVS-872XT ?
One is via 1GB Ethernet, the other via Thunderbolt 3.
