NFS? Take a look at my /etc/exports.
krypton:~# cat /etc/exports
# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
# to NFS clients. See exports(5).
in that format it's pretty simple, you put in the name of the directory - sam
you want to serve up, and the hostname (must be a valid host according to
either your nameserver or /etc/hosts) of the client that is authorised to
connect to it. once that's done, if rpc.mountd and rpc.nfsd are already running,
you need to send them a signal telling them to reread exports, a HUP.
you can either do this with `killall -HUP
once that is done, try to mount it from another machine:
$ mount host:/share /mnt/mountpoint
You can get a lot of information from the error messages that this may provide, but
don't forget that if the error says something like "error from host"
it means it, the error originated there, not on the client's end.
: Didn't get your last name or email at the last meeting, and I'd like to talk about NFS startup info. Anyone else who has NFS working and help, please let's post.
