14. Network File System Server (NFS-Server)

This chapter describes how to start and use the NFS-Server program supplied with WinaXe Plus.

NFS-Server is a network file server that supports the NFS protocol version 3 (see RFC1813. NFS version 3 protocol specification) and the NFS protocol version 2 (see RFC1094. NFS: Network file system protocol specification). It has a multi-threaded code developed for the Win32 environment and is designed to work with the built-in MS Windows TCP/IP-32 protocol stack.

The main feature of NFS-Server is to provide access to hard disk space and files residing on your PC to users working on other network nodes under different operating systems (with NFS client support and TCP/IP).

NFS-Server can be installed under one of the MS Windows (9x/ME/NT4/2K/2K3/XP/Vista) operating systems to share your local drives and folders with other networked users, no matter which operating system they are running on their workstations. Only an NFS client is required on that system for users to mount your disks as part of their system.

By using NFS-Server, you can:

  • Add new directories to the Exported Directories Table or remove them from it

  • Add new remote users to the NFS User Access Table or remove them from it for any selected exported path

  • Change access rights for remote users defined in the NFS User Access Table (i.e. specify each user's read and write permission to your exported path)

  • View status information on those directories of your PC that remote users are currently accessing (i.e. active NFS clients' connections)

  • Suspend/resume current activity of NFS-Server.

NFS-Server provides German and/or French messages and text labels under the corresponding national version of MS Windows.
