Can't see files located on an external NTFS drive when on NFS Client


Hello,


I am running Yellow Dog Linux on a PlayStation 3. I am having a difficult time setting up NFS. On the client, I am able to mount the drive but I am not able to see the files that are actually on the NFS server. The files on the server are located on an external drive. The drive is formatted as an NTFS drive. However, I am able to view the files while on the server.

The only entry in /etc/exports is as follows:
/media/ 192.168.1.116(ro,insecure)


Any advice would be appreciated.


Rick

Generally NFS will only provide access to POSIX compliant filesystems, i.e. UNIX ones. 10 seconds on google does show ways to access it via FUSE, especially with the NTFS-3G project mounting the partition.
