Local files aren't allowed by default, based on a path, as this could expose security issues, such as adding /etc/passwd .
As you mention, only HTTP and FTP are supported for adding remote files, or uploading a file. You can add other links, but the content won't automatically be added to SEEK, and the user would need to click the link and have access.
By default, local urls are also disallowed, but this can be enabled through the admin pages (under Settings - Allow private network address access). The would allow you to support a local anonymous ftp server, or webdav over http. You could restrict this to only allow local access through IP tables. However, like allowing access to mounted drives, other users would be able to maliciously guess paths to other private files.
I'm afraid being able to access local files through an NFS isn't
a usecase we've come across before, other than through webdav. If
this is something you need and would like to contribute, we will
be happy to help you out getting started.
