NFS write permissions problem
I have a small home network of 3 computers total. 2 gentoo computers + an old computer, running Debian 3.1, acting as a server with NFS.
The gentoo computers have the "nfs" package installed and nfs runs at startup, mounting the directory from the server ( /shared/<USER>)
The Debian server was installed with little more than the File Sharing/Server option from the options during install, and I've set up my /etc/exports file like this:
([tab] doesn't seem to work anymore on linuxforums, but the above is supposed to be tabs...rather than several spaces)
The directory, /shared/, is a mounted partition on the debian server. This is that directory's /etc/fstab entry:
(the harddrive is found at /dev/hdc)
/dev/hdc4 /shared vfat rw 0 2
The user id's for some ofthe users on each system are:
on the server, "id josh" gives:
on 192.168.1.105, "id josh" gives:
uid=1001(josh) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),60(games)
i can't currently get the uid information for jason (on 192.168.1.106) nor do i know whether it works....as that computer is being used, but I've been having trouble getting josh (192.168.1.105) to work.
uid=1000(josh) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),10(wheel),18(audio),35(games)]
(EDIT: jason also has trouble writing, but mounts with no problems)
The partition mounts well on josh's computer and lets me see the contents of the server's directories (/home/josh and /home/all) but it won't let me write to that directory. From what I've read online, it seems like it may be a uid problem, but how do I fix this? I tried changing it on my client computer (josh) within /etc/passwd but a lot of things stopped working for that user (couldn't su into root, for example).
Can someone please help me? I almost have it working and it's getting frustrating with it stopping so close....letting me see, but not modify, anything.
Thanks in advance!! :D
