After following the tutorial here I ran into a problem. Here is what I did.
On my server I installed
nfs-kernel-server and edited the
/etc/exports file to include the folder I want to share:
On my client machine I edited my
fstab file to include share:
//128.251.xxx.xxx/var/ ~/uslonsweb003 nfs #username=[username],password=[password], 0 0
sudo mount -a
which gives this error:
mount.nfs: remote share not in 'host:dir' format
Where did I go wrong with this setup?
Also if there is a better way (using command line) to setup a folder share on an Ubuntu 10.10 server that will be accessed by other linux and windows machines please let me know.
The mapped drive is now not letting me create,edit,delete files or folders (readonly access) my configuration is as follows:
client fstab file:
128.251.xxx.xxx:/var /home/coreyf/uslonsweb003 nfs rw,hard,intr, 0 0
server exports file:
Using Allans solution my drive mounted correctly however after putting
rw,intr as my additional parameters I cannot create, edit and delete folders/files.
