Are you asking how the internals of NFS work or are you just wanting to connect network file systems?

If you're just trying to connect to file systems, on the server, open /etc/exports and add a line like:
Code: [ Select ]
/path/to/export     ip.of.valid.client(options)

Change ip.of.valid.client to the client's ip address and see "man exports" for options.

on the client, in /etc/fstab, do:
Code: [ Select ]
ip.of.server:/path/to/export  /local/mount/path  nfs

/path/to/export here should match that on the server. /local/mount/path is where you want to be able to access it on the local machine. To make the mount, just do:
Code: [ Select ]
mount /local/mount/path


You can mount windows shares using samba. Read up in tldp on it (http://www.tldp.org) because I'm not going to go into all that here - whole books are written on the subject.

Likewise on the internal workings of NFS (http://www.tldp.org), if that's what you were looking for.
