NFS Help


Recommended Posts

Hey I'm looking to set up an NFS. Not finding too much useful out there for tutorials. I have an old gateway 1.8 P4 with 2 300 gb hard drives and 512MB ram. It's connected to a Linksys router (switch). Its got a bare bones version of XP running on it now, but I can install a linux distro on it.

->Looking for an easy to impliment solution that will allow multiple Os's to be able to access the NFS.

->Also looking for some instruction on configureing the NFS itself.

Any help would be great.

I had to use TCP rather than UDP to get any performance over it.

Also, it seems NFSv4 just isn't ready yet. Stick with v3 for the time being.

I've got a server running here with NFS, so if you run into issues there's a fair chance I can help.
