Re: Problems with nfs
Make sure both sides of the connection are running the same
version of NFS.
Some of the issues describes here can be seen in connections where two
NFS try to inter-operate!!!!

I resolved the problem with slowness. This appeared to happen because
of seteuid() error (discovered in logs). Local system account on Win7
doesn't have token creation/change rights. I fixed this by creating
own local user with sufficient privileges and running nfsd under this
account. BTW, may be you should add remark about this particularity
into nfs-server.README file? It's not obvious, because the system
works, just very slowly. The user might think it's okay.
Also, why does nfs access appear to be so horribly slow? Loading a
directory with ~150 files takes about two minutes in mc. I understand
fork() issue, but what are problems with just reading files descriptors?
But RPC problem didn't go away. I tried to run portmapd under the
same user with no positive result. The first thing client says is:
pmap_getmaps.c: rpc problem: RPC: Unable to receive; errno =
Connection reset by peer
I tried to completely turn off Windows firewall, again with no
effect. So i still have to restart portmap service after i log in into
the system in order to get NFS working.
And one more little but annoying thing. All files on Linux site
appear to have owner and group id == 42949672. However access control
works correctly (i didn't modify any Cygwin mounts and i have ACLs
turned on). /etc/nfs/server.map is set up correctly (i guess so,
because access control works, i can read write and execute my files).
Looks like it's some problem with reverse mapping.
