RE: nfs-server 2.2.47-2

Email?  In any case, the web page is certainly
clear that cygwin-apps (which you cross-posted
this message to) is not the appropriate forum
for this question.

Whose note are you refering to?

If you were running these commands under Cygwin,
then you did nothing at all with nfs-server.
You created a directory named /mnt/nfs under the
Cygwin root, and then directed Cygwin to mount
the Windows directory H:/nfs at /mnt/nfs.

Assuming you exported /mnt/nfs via nfs-server, this
is to be expected.  NFS doesn't understand Windows
drive notation.

I'm unclear as to what you are trying to
accomplish (or, rather, *how* you are trying
to accomplish it).  There is no NFS client
for Cygwin; so if you are trying to export
a directory from a Cygwin box, and mount it
on another Cygwin box, that won't work at

If you're looking for assistance, please respond
your /etc/exports file, and a description of
how you are trying to mount the exports on your
remote machine.
