Mounting NFS on SpycerBox

Robert Leong -

NFS is normally turned on already on the SpycerBox, to check the services and config do this:

From command line:

Check what the share name is, enter this command:

cat /etc/export

And to verify the NFS sharing service is turned on:

service nfs status

From desktop GUI:

RedHat 5.3: 
System > Administration > Server Settings > NFS

RedHat 6.2: 
System > Administration > Services > scroll down to "nfs"


To mount the NFS from a Linux client do this:

mount -t nfs //path/to/share /mnt/nfs -o user=xxx,password=xxx,domain=nixcraft

/etc/fstab will need to be updated too to auto mount on reboot.
