File sharing between to linux boxes with NFS
start nfs service on the server machine and client machine
Server : 192.168.1.2
service nfs start
edit /etc/exports file and add the location you want to share
this is the entry to be added to exports file to share a folder called test in home directory. (rw) will allow both read and write
host_name is the name of the host(client IP or client hostname) from where you are going to mount this share
ex: if you want to share a folder called test in home folder to a client with ip address 192.168.1.1 do as below..
edit export file to add this entry (this is entered host server whose folder is actually shared)
go to cleint machine and start nfs service
then mount the nfs sharing
mount -t nfs -o rw nfs_server_name://folder_name_with_path mount_point
mount -t nfs -o rw 192.168.1.2://home/test /testnfs
see man page of mount to see all the mount options.
now you can see the sharing as a folder in your own filesystem with read write permission
