    Windows (2k) and NFS?

    Is there a way of connecting to an NFS share from Windows (2k)?

    AFAIK, the only option is to *ack* buy M$'s UNIX file sharing application to try to get rid of SAMBA. Other than that, it's SAMBA all the way. I could be wrong though. :P

    I recall trying a product from Hummingbird (I think) a few years ago that worked. It was a trial version that I never did buy. Let's you run NFS on a Winblows box. I use SAMBA for all file sharing between Winblows and 'nix.

    Windows NFS is crappy, and it only becomes usable unfortuanately with commercial tools. The free ones all suck ass. I tried this with my former boss, making some stuff on our OpenBSD shit NFSed out and more simply editiable by him and his XP box. I gae up and just gave him a link to putty, and his login ;D
