nfs server on windows
I am having Linux Kernel 2.6.19 running on my designed embedded computer using ARM core processor that has nfs client. It mounts its file system on a network nfs server. We had used Linux machine as nfs server, which worked very well.
I tried to set a windows XP machine as nfs server using software nfsAxe v3.4. The kernel cannot mount the file system and issues the following message:
device=eth0, addr=192.168.0.12, mask=255.255.255.0, gw=255.255.255.255,
host=192.168.0.12, domain=, nis-domain=(none),
bootserver=255.255.255.255, rootserver=192.168.0.10, rootpath=
Looking up port of RPC 100003/2 on 192.168.0.10
portmap: server 192.168.0.10 not responding, timed out
Root-NFS: Unable to get nfsd port number from server, using default
Looking up port of RPC 100005/1 on 192.168.0.10
Root-NFS: Server returned error -13 while mounting /c/home_own/rootfs
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
VFS: Cannot open root device "nfs" or unknown-block(2,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(2,0)
The server issues the message:
->prog = 100005,ver=1,prot=17;
Please let me know if you have a solution.
