this is for access of files between unix-machines. you will need to install this package as you want to. than you must have /etc/exports and can have /etc/hosts.[deny|allow]. in /etc/exports you can put the directories you want to export like


for your home dir it would be


this exports the dir /home/user for all clients in the subnet of with rights for reading and writing. the next thing would be, to use hosts.[allow|deny].

nfs looks into hosts.* before it allows access to the exported dir. also you can allow/deny services to access the files via

: e.g. portmap:ALL would deny in hosts.deny the access of portmap for all clients.

to mount the dir from a remote machine it would be

mount -t nfs : /tmp/nfs -> mount -t /tmp/nfs
