Perhaps the foloowing question is off-topic.


NFS Client runs on UNIX.
Cygwin NFS Server runs on Windows.

How to specify the device (Windows-directory/folder) to be mounted on
mount point (UNIX-directory)?

The problem is how to set the pathname of the exported file system on
Windows NFS Server.

For UNIX NFS Server the pathname might be set as it follows
<IP address of UNIX machine>:/dir1/dir2

For instance, Windows machine contains folder C:\folder1\folder2 that
is to be exported.
How to set the pathname? What to do with "C:"?

<IP address of UNIX machine>:C:\folder1\folder2
