Re: Sharing files between MacOS X and Linux

Actually I had already looked at this documentation prior to posting
to this newsgroup.
I had followed the steps mentioned in that how-to, and I still can't
get NFS working correctly. One of the problems is that I only have
one Linux machine to test against.
Is it possible to mount a directory as an NFS share point on the same
I tried doing this and I got a message saying permission denied. I
don't know why. I have specified my Linux box as a valid client in
the hosts.allow file
I also can't get the Macintosh to connect to the Linux box. From the
Finder I user Comamnd-K to access the Connect To Server dialog. Then
I typed in nfs://<Linux IP address>/<shared directory>. It just sits
there and spins its wheels endlessly, until I cancel the operation.
I also have not had much luck finding information about how to set up
the Macintosh as an NFS server.
Does anyone know where I can find documentation on that?
