hi we are trying to set up a network of linux/red_hat/windows machines here in the office. Presently it's just the 3 of us but we plan on adding more people soon.
We have a new Dell server running FC4. This would be our file server we want it ro run NFS so that other linux machines can mount a directory it will export (say, /work) and put all our files in the server. The other machines are 2 RH workstations and an FC4 laptop. I tried putting /work in the /etc/exports file of the server then went to one of the clients (laptop) and typed:
mount -t nfs 192.168.15.105:/work /
and it said the server was down so that's the first question, what's up with that? do i have to explicitly type a command on the server to start running the NFS or does it start automatically during boot?
also is it recommended that I fix the IP address of the server so i don't have to type 192.168.15.whatever every time the client wants to mount /work(IP address currently handed down by DHCP server ran by a Linksys router). i did try this but then the server cannot connect to the Internet for some reason do i need to do anything after i fix the address (maybe reset the router just thought about that).
