Configuration of the Network File System server
For working of the nfs server we should to install the package nfs-kernel-server.
To configure the nfs-server we should do the following:
1. The creation of a shared directory and write permission to it.
$ mkdir /home/dima/nfsdir $ chmod -R a+rw /home/dima/nfsdir
2. In to the file /etc/exports we add the line
where /home/dima/nfsdir – is the path to the shared directory on the local machine, 192.168.0.100 – IP-address of the NFS-client, who has allowed access to the directory, rw – access type (write + read).
3. In to the file hosts.allow we add the lines:
portmap: 192.168.0.100 mountd: 192.168.0.100
4. Running the command:
$ exportfs -rv
where the option r – means updating all file systems, the option v – displays detailed information about the actions carried out by the command exportfs.
