Setup and Configure NFS Server/Client in Linux

Up until now, I had been accessing my Ubuntu server via Samba, from my Fedora 12 box. Until I discovered what NFS really is and how it works.

The actual guide which I followed can be found on the Ubuntu forums here.

I was able to successfully install the server portion of it on my Ubuntu 9.10 server, and access it from Fedora 12.

BUT! In order to get it to mount automatically when booting, instead of editing /etc/fstab, I had to edit /etc/mtab. The rest was fine. Keep this in mind if you get an error when adding it to your “fstab.”

Now that I better understanding of what NFS is, it’s time to do some good reading and research on it for future reference.
