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,
