NFS SOLARIS 2.5 <---> W95 ????

Post by Michel Le » Mon, 12 Aug 1996 04:00:00



HI,

 I just installed PC-NFS Pro  on my W95 and I am trying to mount
 filesystems which are on my Solaris 2.5 x.86 computer.

 Connections are made via Ethernet TCP/IP.
 Software is well installed on the PC.

 NOW what to do on the UNIX side????

 I tried to create the file /etc/exports and also /etc/dfs/sharetab
 and then start the dameon nfsd and mountd

 BUT I AM not sure to use the correct file and also to do those 'call'
 fllowing the right sequence.

 On the pc the cmmand that I type is :
 nfs use F:  MyMachineIp-Address:/Directory-That-I-want-To-Mount

 and I keep receiving the message :  Directory-That-I-want-To-Mount : Permission denied

 ANY IDEA ?  POINTERS ? THANKS !

 michel

Hi Michel,

This may sound like heresy, but why not use SAMBA on the unix box, and
mount the UNIX file systems via SMB protocol (hell, if you've already
shelled out for PC-NFS, then what's the point, I guess).

You may need to run pcnfsd on the workstation. It should have come with
PC-NFS (in source code and/or binary form)

At least with the older versions of PCNFS this was true

Also, you don't need /etc/exports anymore. Its all handled by the
configuration in /etc/dfs

Oh and one other thing. If you have not rebooted since you added the
sharetab entries I'm not sure if the rpcd runs (to be safe go ahead and
reboot, its probably safer than trying to start the nfsd and other manually
anyhow but the manual mode [if done properly] certainly should work)

You should not edit sharetab (or exports) in Solaris 2.X.
You should add your share lines like :
share -F nfs /directory/I/want/to/share
to /etc/dfs/dfstab and then reboot in order to start the nfsd daemons.
sharetab is created dynamically by the nfsd server and should not be modified.
/etc/exports is used in SunOS4.x
Make also sure that your Win95 box internet address is known to the server
via either /etc/hosts, NIS/NIS+ or DNS (depending on what you are running)
or the server will anyway refuse to export the file system to the PC.

HTH,
(BTW I tried to send this by E-mail it bounced)

On the PC, click on "Login/Logout->Settings->Network Drives" and set it
up from there, using the PC-NFSpro Windows dialogue.

Make sure you've authenticated yourself first, using the "Login/Logout"
dialogue.

Also remember that /home is no longer /home using Solaris 2.x, it's now
/export/home.

In UNIX, rpc.pcnfsd must be running.  nfsd must be running.
/etc/dfs/dfstab must be modified appropriately.  shareall must be run
once dfstab changed (or just reboot the Solaris box).

You need to create /etc/dfs/dfstab. Look for man pages on dfstab and share
for details.
Then you would need to run shareall in addition to starting the demons.
(Best would be to reboot machine).

I suggest that you don't use PC-NFS, you may find that a samba client on
the SUN would be much more efficient and useful.  Samba allows a sun to
emulate an MS-windows machine.  For more information on samba see:
