Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an Ubuntu server and want to access its web folder (/var/www). What I done:

installed nfs-kernel-server, nfs-common and portmap (as in faq)

Setted up /etc/exports:

/var/www 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw,no_roow_squash,async,subtree_check)

Then: sudo exportfs -ra

Then: sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernle-server restart

I checked, if all works on same machine: sudo 192.168.1.101:/var/www /mnt/test

Then accessed /mnt/test and seen that all data present and all ok.

Next, I tried to connect this folder to windows7 using NFS client:

First, I checked, that linux exported path successfully:

showmount -e 192.168.1.101
/var/www 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0

All ok, go to mount:
mount -o anon 192.168.1.101:/var/www z:

Console said, that all success.. but. I cant access drive Z (drive exists in the system and point to right folder). When I try to access drive Z my Explorer just going to sleep and then say that timeout expired.

Help me please.

I am thinking you'll need to set up User Name Mapping.

nfsd can work either with user names or ip addresses. User name mapping dont solve problem. Anyway I tried to assign unix user (with net use) but without success. I solved problem by installing Samba server. Thank you for answer. –  Vitaly Apr 19 '10 at 14:52
