Using NFS to share files with iBook


I used YaST to set up SUSE 9.2 as an NFS server. /etc/exports now has this entry:

/home/ *(ro,root_squash,sync)

Machelp says to type in the network address for the server to connect. How do I find out what this is? I tried 192.168.0.2 and that didn't work.

Machelp also says "To connect to an NFS server, type the DNS name and pathname like this:
nfs://DNSname/pathname

How do I find out what my DNSname and pathname are?

ifconfig -a from a command prompt will list the network info for each network adaptor...

you can use the ip address assigned to the primary network adaptor to connect to it.

#ifconfig -a
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:81:29:56:8F
inet addr:10.196.143.205 Bcast:10.196.143.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::2e0:81ff:fe29:568f/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:34593354 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:7 frame:0
TX packets:50370039 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:2811648955 (2681.3 Mb) TX bytes:3266119092 (3114.8 Mb)

eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:81:29:56:8E
BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Base address:0x2000 Memory:f5020000-f5040000


using the above example...

nfs://10.196.143.205/home

would get you there.

I used ifconfig to get the 192.168.0.2 address I mentioned at the beginning of the thread.

When I type nfs://192.168.0.2/home I get:

could not connect to the server because the name or password is not correct
