Permission denied when access linux from windows through NFS implementation

I'm making an implementation of NFS in windows. my client program uses the NFS protocol to gain access to an NFS server. the portmap protocol was able to return a valid port but when i used the mount protocol with no authentication specified, i was given a no permission error. my objective is to get the mount protocol the return a valid file handle that i can use to browse the nfs server.

can anybody help? tnx.

Perhaps you need to set up proper authentication. Or really, setting up a uid to be passed to the NFS server.

i just read the nfs specification and the null authentication is used only for null calls.

i tried using the unix authentication and passed a UID = 0 which is the root so that i can have root access. i already configured the /etc/exports file

/ my_machine(rw,no_root_squash)

and rebooted the system. but still i get i permission denied.
