User / Group permissions on NFS shares
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 20, 2007
I have a problem which is probably has a really simple solution but I can't seem to find it. I have a server running Fedora Core 5 with all my pictures, music, etc on. I have a laptop with Fedora 7 and my wife runs XP Pro on hers. We both have user accounts on the server and have a primary group of StoreUsers. She does most of the picture editing, etc so I have made her the owner of all data files, with StoreUsers as the group. She connects via Samba shares and mapped drives and has free reign on those files. So far so good.
I have an NFS share from the server mounted on my laptop via a line in /etc/fstab:
nfs shares and permissions
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 17, 2007
I have been trying to set up a nfs share between 2 ubuntu machines. I can set up the share easily however I can not write to the share and keep getting permission denied errors eg "touch: cannot touch file Read-only file system"
my /etc/exports on my server machine is as follows:
/media/music_safe 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 (rw,sync)
I have created a directory on my client machine and made it rwx all, I have also made the directory on my server machine rwx all. What have I done wrong?

Hi I want automount nfs shares.
Here are the details:
Share contents: /dir1/dir2/sub1, /dir1/dir2/sub2 & so on
1) mount sub1 in /dir1/sub1 (Not as /dir1/dir2/sub1)
This should be done using autofs.
How to do this???
NFS shares with ufw
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 10, 2008
I'm using ufw (Uncomplicated Firewall) and I'm having problems mounting my NFS shares with the firewall enabled.
Can someone post the ufw rules used to make NFS work?
Both the client and the server are running Ubuntu Hardy.
Thanks a lot!
Mounting NFS Shares Hit or Miss On Linux Box Running Ubuntu

I'm having problems mounting NFS shares to my Linux PC. I'm having the same issues in Ubuntu 13.4 and Linux Mint 15. My NSF server is running on a ReadyNAS Ultra 4. My Linux PC has a static IP and I've assigned that ip address in the "root privilege-enabled hosts" field for all of my shares.
I've successfully mounted a couple of shares at one point, but I did some playing around and unmounted those shares and haven't been able to mount any shares since. I must also add that I had shares mounted with cifs and NFS at the same time. I just wanted to point that out just in case there may have been some sort of conflict that led me to my current problem.
I'm now getting the following error when attempting to mount ANY NFS share:
"mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting"
I also used the following command to install the necessary client files before attempting to connect to my NFS server:
apt-get install nfs-common

browse NFS shares from fresh ubuntu install?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 17, 2012
We have a one segment lan with no frills. The always on media center has some NFS shares, some restricted to certain IP addresses. It has two samba shares so the windows maachines can put files in a certain applications blackhole directory.
How can one browse NFS shares of another machine? This would be handy when I do not remember the entire list as can happen when I haven't eaten recently
HOWTO: Mount NFS shares from Ubuntu/Linux in Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 1, 2006
I gave up on Samba several months ago, and switched to using NFS to share folders over my LAN. But one of my family insists on using Windows XP, so I needed to find a solution to allow them to access the NFS shares. This is neatly done by Microsoft themselves, for "free", using their "Windows Services for Unix" setup. My file server is an Edubuntu Dapper (I use LSTP too) with four NFS shares. Please note that this is a basic, get you up and running howto, there is more configuration required and available, especially for the security conscious, which is beyond the scope of this howto.
First off, you need to understand NFS Server and Client for Ubuntu. I followed this guide, and suggest you do the same.
The important part to understand is the syntax for a share
Once you have the nfs server and some shares set up, make a note of the syntax needed to access them from a remote
NFS shares browsing / enumerating
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2008
Can a client browse or otherwise enumerate the share directories that an NFS server is making available?
I get the feeling that this is what samba is for, to replace NFS but I want to make sure.
The only other ways I can think of to do this is either get root on the server and run showmount -e, or sniff traffic between the server and other clients who have an active NFS session running.
Breaking out of hanging df h when NFS shares are unreachable.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 19, 2008
Hi! We have had several instances where we would issue a "df -h" to see if our NFS shares are mounted where we experience hangs when they are not avalible. I have tried the classic ctrl+c using the bash shell with no luck can someone offer a better solution? The entire terminal seems to just hang and we cannot break out of it.
HOWTO: Mounting NFS Shares on Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2013
On my home LAN I have a mixed cadre of systems with XP running alongside Ubuntu, and I have movies, financial documents, printers, photos, MP3s, etc that need to be available to multiple users on both Ubuntu and Windows. Many people will say "Use SAMBA!" or "Use both!" for sharing, but I like NFS because I had many issues with SAMBA I wasn't able to resolve. So, I went to NFS. That was easy enough on the Ubuntu machines, but the XP machines were a different story. Out of the box, Microsoft's Windows XP doesn't come equipped to talk to NFS servers, which was a minor problem, but one easily fixed by downloading and installing Windows Services For Unix. For the most part, I was able to follow the guide here with regard to setting up and configuring WSFU:
It's a well written guide, and everything ran exactly as expected until I was trying to mount the Ubuntu shares on my one XP machine, failing with the error "Canno
