How to set up public folder/ share folder for my network?


Hi all,

I am a newbie in using Ubuntu, my fren who help me setup my network had giving me a script about how to setup the public folder. But when I try to do myself, I can't successfully set up the public/share folder. Some one can help me see what's wrong with the script pls?


sudo mkdir /media/public
sudo chown $USER:$USER /media/public
sudo echo "gms:/usr/local/share/public /media/public nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr" >>/etc/fstab
sudo mount -a

I can complete the step until
sudo mount -a

then the error message appear
mount:wrong fs type,bad option superblock on gms:/usr/local/share/public, missing codepage or helper program, or other error (for several filesystems (e.g. ngs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount <type> helper program) In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try


very much appreciate if you guys can help me solve this problem.

Thanks.

Welcome to LinuxQuestions

Is portmap and nfs-common installed on the client computer?
Is portmap and rpc running?

HI Michaelk,

Thanks for you reply.

Honestly I am not sure what is the portmap and nfs-common..

Can you guide me through how should i verify it?

The purpose of this script is to help me access the folder from many computer to my server computer.
Which we use it as a share folder in our office network.

I am totally new in networking and ubuntu.
Hope someone could give me some guide.
Thanks.

Basically the following installs the stuff needed for the client to communicate with the server.
sudo apt-get install portmap nfs-common

Then try to mount the share.

This is a public forum so individual help will not benefit everyone else.
What version of Ubuntu is running on this computer?
Post the output of the command
cat /etc/lsb-release

Is basic networking functional on this computer?
