    Thumbs down I cant install NFS!!! I'm pulling my hair out


    I have the NFS service started by going to system - services and start nfs and also by typing service nfs start in the terminal

    I CANNOT get yum install system-config-nfs to work, i get no package found or nothing to do everytime... i just need the NFS tab to show up under system - applications

    1st step: read up on how to use yum because you might need to search for a missing package.
    Code:
    man yum
    Hint to step 1 (more of a giveaway):
    Code:
    yum provides system-config-nfs
    More to the point, you don't actually need system-config-nfs in order to run an nfs server. Just make sure the startup script (in /etc/rc.d/init.d in most distros) is executable, assuming the server is installed correctly. Then you need to configure the server and make sure your firewall doesn't block connections, etc.

    Most configuration is in the file /etc/exports:
    Code:
    man exports
