Machine a has the following line in /etc/exports:
That line is identical to entries I have for 2 other exports from machine a. The 2 other exports are regular directories, so they're easy.
When the camera is connected to the usb port on machine a, a new directory named "disk" is automatically created under the existing directory /media/
"dcim" is a directory under "disk" within the camera's internal filesystem.
Machine b has the following line in /etc/fstab:
192.168.128.94:/media/disk/dcim /home/share/media-optisrvr nfs defaults 0 0
Of course, directory /home/share/media-optisrvr exists.
When the camera has been connected to machine a, on machine b, I can execute "mount -a" and the camera files will be available on machine b. After disconnecting the camera, I need to execute "umount -l" before I can mount it again.
I'd like to know if I can make the camera available on machine b more conveniently: ideally, like it is on machine a. I'd like for it to be easy enough for my wife to do without her asking why I don't just buy a windows machine....
Thanks for your help.
