Question Windows 7 NFS access Linux root directory problem

NFS server running on CentOS 7.0
only one line in /etc/exports:
/    192.168.*.*(rw,all_squash)
I tested on the server, everything goes well.

Then I mounted it on Windows 7
mount z:
It can be successfully mounted, but when I try to access the driver, I got this
'The network path was not found.'

Well... giving windows access to the root directory is not a good idea - it will allow Windows to copy things it shouldn't have access to.

Second, SELinux could be blocking access if the boolean control doesn't permit the root filesystem to be exported...

Normal operation of a server would never export the root filesystem. That introduces too many security problems. Exporting a data filesystem/directory tree is what is normally done.
