Multiple users mounting NFS share


If I have a share available using NFS, can multiple users mount that share simultaneously or will that cause any problems reading and writing or anything like that?
Thanks for the help!

Well, Samba uses oplocks to deal with the chance of multiple users writing a file simultaneously. How would NFS handle that?

there are multiple nfs-threads (you can tune them by passing an argument to rpcd.nfsd) . a client connects to the machine and get's a port to comunicate with the server. another client .. the same. nfs is imho lot faster than samba.
