Hi, I was just setting up NFS on two FreeBSD 4.2 boxes for the first time and used your write up as a guide. It was very helpful however you had a few problems that where not explained very well.

You say.....

The next problem I encountered was a permissions issue:

[root@ducky:/mnt] # mkdir temp
mkdir: temp: Permission denied

I tried many things to resolve this. Eventually it went away. I have no idea why. Sorry.

which could have been fixed with a few changes to /etc/exports. *should* read something like the following;

/export/path1 -alldirs clientPCName
/path2 -maproot=username clientPCName

this will allow /export/path1 to be read only by the PC 'clientPCName' and /path2 will give clientPCName the same permissions as 'username' to the /path2 directory tree.

a simple 'man exports' explains a number of the options for this file

Hope that makes sense and thanx for putting the page up, it had me sharing files in no time at all :]
