Getting NFS working

Post by testyer » Fri Aug 18, 2006 12:20 am

Hello,

I just got my xbox running and all working well, BUT NFS seems to not be an option. I am use the GUI to configure, not that 'swift' in the terminal. On samba that can be configured in anyway I want but the NFS is just greyed out. What are my options to get the NFS working?

Well don't quote me but I got it working quite easily, by,

#emerge nfs-utils
#nano /etc/exports
/var/www/localhost/htdocs/mrtg 192.168.100.251(rw,no_subtree_check,sync) (the folder on the server side you wanna share)
#exportfs -ra
#/etc/init.d/nfs start
#rc-update add nfs default


Then on the other xbox
#emerge nfs-utils
#/etc/init.d/portmap start
#/etc/init.d/nfs start
#rc-update add nfs default
#mount -t nfs 192.168.100.251:/mrtg /var/www/localhost/htdocs/mrtg-nas

And if that works add it to your fstab

Some sh*t like that, but as I say it's quite easy
