NFS queries - Newbie


Is it possible to share out (NFS) a folder with permission 750 to another server (NFS client) to more than 1 user (able to read and write to the folder) to use? If so, how to go about it as I experienced permission denied when the user in NFS client tried to touch a file in the NFS shared folder.

Thanks in advance

When the users belong to the same group there is no problem to share. But beware, if you do not use a centralized authentication (NIS, LDAP) you run the risk that UID's and GID's are different on different machines.

Although the name might appear the same (e.g. users), the numerical ID might be different. The Linux access system checks on numerical ID, not on the name.
