nfs sharing a usb drive?

Recommended Posts

ComputerA has a usb drive /dev/sdc1 - either fat32 or ntfs.


I mount it as

/dev/sdc1 on /ext/c1 type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,umask=000)


all user on ComputerA can access it.


My /etc/exports has:



ComputerB has mounted:

ComputerA:/ext on /ext type nfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,addr=


no one on B can see files in /ext/c1 - it is like nfs isn't aware that a drive is mounted on 'c1'.


How do I provide nfs access to these usb/firewire drives?


The man page for exports mentions the nohide option, which makes it work for one client - but this did not work for me.

I guess I'll try a share for each drive


I figured nfs would abstract the file system types out of it. Maybe samba is a better choice?
