hi i recently configured my Linux (Slackware 11.0)pc to share directories using Samba.
Now i want to do the same using NFS but its not happening.
here are the steps i followed
1)I just used 'man exports' to find out how that's done and did that.however on XP's network neighbourhood its not showing any shrared folder(however samba folders are still accessible)
2)i also enabled the rpc service(using pkgtool)
but of no use.
3)i checked my kernel compilation to see if it had included the option for my pc to act as NFS server and found out that yes it was(hard wired and not module)
So is it possible to access a Linux pc from Windows pc using NFS or NFS is only for sharing between Linux pcs only ?
One thing more i want to say is that when i boot up there is a line that comes that says:
FATAL nfsd not found(i dont remember the exact error)
but then it does start rpc and all(may be i dont know what i am saying):P
Google is your friend. I have used nfs utilities for versions of windows prior to XP. Tinkered a little bit with nfs under Cygwin on XP but not enough to get it working before the IT police declared it unsafe.
