NFS setup question: No password setup?


Hi,

I have this question from the course that I am taking-
Do you need to have an account (and password) on a file server to access NFS?
I can't find a clear answer to this anywhere in the book/net. Could this be done?

Thanks

man exports

Read the section on "User ID mapping"

As far as I've seen it only works with file permissions. So you don't get a popup box if that's what you're asking.

So, it can be done if we export using anon=uid option? I cant find exports for Ubuntu using apt-get.. funny.

It's a file in /etc - not a package

If you have nfs-tools installed you'll most likely have a
/etc/exports and its man-page installed. Just try "man exports"


Cheers,
Tink
