You may be seeing a bug with Linux NFS.  There have been quite a few
reported.  Have a look with snoop to see what error messages the server
is reporting.

I push my clients hard to avoid Linux NFS serving Solaris clients (it works

much better the other way round!).

That's old.  You will find many improvements of the NFS code in the
more recent kernels.  Upgrade to Red Hat 6.1 if you can.

1. FC/2 NFS Client problem with Linux NFS Server


My problem only exist under File Commander version 1.40 and beyond.
Specifically, my problem is with copying a file from my local drive to
my network drive running Linux Slackware (2.0.0) NFS server. The file
gets copied but it has zero bytes. The NFS Control Program window
displays this message:

"Open (filename) : Failed to create file."

The File Commander displays "Access denied". I click OK and the file got
copied but the length is zero.

I go over to my Linux server and the file is there with zero length and
the permission bits are all zeros.

I seem to have isolated the problem to File Commander since I don't get
this problem when I do the "copy" from the command line. The file gets
copied to my network drive with the correct permission bits.

(BTW, I don't have this problem when I copy from my network drive to my
local drive. It's only when I copy FROM my local drive TO my network

I appreciate your help.
