    Redhat Mounting Question

    I have on my right a windows 2000 box which I have managed to configure with nfs shares

    I have on my left a brand spanking install of redhat 9.

    the machine on right is called mince and the share is called mynfs

    I have on my left a shell window.

    5 points to the first person who tells me what I type in to mount the network share as a drive !

    Its driving me nuts. man 8 and user guide not helping.

    is it realy NFS or is it SMB on the windows 2000 box ??

    if it is SMB (windows network shares), try:

    mkdir /mnt/mince

    mount //mince/mynfs /mnt/mince -t smbfs -o username=your_username
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    Try mount mince:/my/nfs/exported/dir /mnt/mince

    You can check if it's really exported with showmount -e mince.

    try looking at the end of your /var/log/messages

    tail -n20 /var/log/messages

    perhaps there is a clue as to why it doesn't work..

    also try adding -t nfs to SirDice's line

    It should work but I'm not a really big fan of NFS on windows (it usually sux, huge compatibility issues). It's probably easier to install Samba on the RedHat machine and use smbmount to mount it like the_Jinx suggested.

    But if you must... as an excercise..

    Check if your permission are correct for the mynfs export. Make sure the ip address of the RedHad machine is allowed access. Also remember to mount it using the full path of the exported directory (not sure how this works on an windows box). Showmount should be able to give you that information.
