Debian file server installed - now what ?


Hello all --

I think this definitely qualifies as a newbie thread...


I have a new Debian box installed; base installation (no gui) + file server.
(ssh is installed on all boxes)

So it's up and running, I gave it a static IP and qualified hostname ( if it matters ).

I want to use this as storage for other Linux boxes.

The big question how do I access this from another Linux box (Debian)?
I will only be using *nix, no Macs or Windows boxes.


Any help getting going would be great.

You can access the machine from another box using ssh. If you are looking to share files between you Linux boxes, then you can do this using NFS.

Hi reddazz, thanks for the reply.

So NFS is what I am after.


I found the /etc/exports file and added:

/srv 10.0.0.72(rw)



Code:
# rpcinfo -p
   program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
    100003    2   udp   2049  nfs
    100003    3   udp   2049  nfs
    100003    4   udp   2049  nfs
    100003    2   tcp   2049  nfs
    100003    3   tcp   2049  nfs
    100003    4   tcp   2049  nfs
    100021    1   udp  32768  nlockmgr
    100021    3   udp  32768  nlockmgr
    100021    4   udp  32768  nlockmgr
    100021    1   tcp  54853  nlockmgr
    100021    3   tcp  54853  nlockmgr
    100021    4   tcp  54853  nlockmgr
    100005    1   udp    945  mountd
    100005    1   tcp    948  mountd
    100005    2   udp    945  mountd
    100005    2   tcp    948  mountd
    100005    3   udp    945  mountd
    100005    3   tcp    948  mountd
    100024    1   udp  32770  status
    100024    1   tcp  54694  status

Still not sure how to access the share from the client side?

Am I on the right track?

Debian Admin has an article that may help you setup NFS on both the server and client. Also search on google for "debian+nfs" to see more articles.

Got it!

I used these tutorials:

http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/NFS-HOWTO.html

http://groups.google.de/group/linuxu...1cd23824bdb145
( this one for an error message )


Thanks again.
