Connect to NFS on Linux
Authored by: renehinojosa on Dec 03, '03 11:50:37AM

This is all I have in my /etc/exports file:

#exports begin


#exports end

You do have to either reboot(not really) the server or run
exportfs -ra to force nfsd to re-read the /etc/exports   file.(from section 3.5 of the how-to) exportfs -ra forces NFS to reread the conf file.

Connect to NFS on Linux
Authored by: macsebi on May 11, '04 10:47:53AM
so, you must have the same uid on your mac and linux box... ?

I don't have write access to my files...
I'm user 500 on linux and 501 on Mac OS X.

My /etc/exports on linux looks like this:

/home  powerbook(rw,insecure,all_squash,anonuid=500)
/data   powerbook(rw,insecure,map_static=/etc/nfs/
the "" looks like this:

uid     501     500     # map 501 (me on powerbook)  to 500 (me on linux)
gid     0       100     # map   0 (wheel on powerbook) to 100 (users on linux)
But I only have write access to folders with
chmod 777
owner 501
on the linux box.
So, both methods don't work for me and I can't see why...

Any help there?
