How to detect which PC (IP Address) copied files in an NFS folder?

I have iomega appliance, which is based on Debian distribution. There is an NFS share that I have created which is without password.
Since it is without password, there are some viruses copied. I want to find out which IP address is the source of these files. In other words, I want to know which PC is copying these infected files on the NFS share.
Is there a way to find out?
Thanks in advance.

other than installing a network sniffer, I don't know what you could do. And it would only trap future file accesses.

maybe NFS can be set to log accesses.

Here is a good read about nfs security
