How do you share a Linux directory over a network with other Linux machines (preferably non-GUI)?
i've briefly Googled this but practically everything turns up Samba-related issues. i'm aware that i can mount a Linux machine's Samba shares on another Linux machine but that just seems unnecessary.Registered Linux User #379728

put what you want to share in /etc/exports
(there's a syntax see man page)
start up the nfsserver daemons
from the client (there are some client daemons probably just nfs... I forget)
showmount -e hostname shows what another machine is sharing
mount -t nfs hostname:share-name mountpoint
or put it into your /etc/fstab (with a no auto option is good... I hate waiting for a machine to start that wont 'cos it's trying to mount NFS shares that aren't available
Hop that helps cheers
