Virtualbox

Getting FreeNFS Working (With VirtualBox)

I had considerable issues achieving this using an Oracle Virtualbox Linux guest and Windows 7. The solution seems to be using this version of FreeNFS with Windows and some specific mount command parameters in Linux, via a VirtualBox NAT interface. The command syntax I used within the (Ubuntu) Linux guest was this: sudo mount -v -t nfs -o nolock,nfsvers=3,proto=tcp,port=2049,sec=none server_name_or_ip:/ /mnt/nfs The output on success looked like this: mount.nfs: timeout set for Mon Dec 21 15:12:36 2015 mount.
