Greetings Luchen,

Have you tried following these instructions: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo :confused:

Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks wyldckat, I have looked through the website you gave, but I still can't make it ,I can share the folder in the /home dir, but I can't share the removable hard disk in the networks. I can't find any hint to do it.

Hi Luchen,

You're not sharing much information on this, so I'll have to use a more abstract description.

On the server side, namely where you have the disk you want to share, you might have something like this in the file "/etc/exports":
Code:

/home 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)
You can add the new disk by adding the respective line:
Code:

/home 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)
/media/newHarddisk 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)

Then update the share list on memory at the server:
Code:

sudo exportfs -ra
On the client side, namely where you want the disk to work remotely, try to mount the new disk like this:
Code:

sudo mount 192.168.1.42:/media/newHarddisk /mnt
Adjust the IP addresses accordingly. The new shared disk should be in "/mnt".

Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks wyldckat, I have tried with your method,but I can mount the folder in the media,but after I mount, there is a lock on the folder and the content in the folder can't be shown. do you know why?

Hi Luchen,

Without more information, I have no clue as to what the problem might be.

To get some clues, try running the following command on both machines:
Code:

mount
Check the mounting options that are shown for the folders in question. For example, you should be able to see lines like these:
Code:

/dev/sdb1 on /media/external_drive type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)

/dev/sda3 on /home type ext4 (rw)

The information between parenthesis is the mount options being used.

Best regards,
Bruno
