Samba+NFS+SSH tunnel = file read problem
My server is running RedHat 4.0 ES. I export the same share with Samba and with NFS over SSH tunneling.
As clients I have a PC with Windows XP accessing to the share with Samba and a Redhat 9.0 box accessing the share with NFS over SSH tunnels.
My problem is that a file read operation hangs on my linux client if the file has been modified and saved by the Windows client a few seconds before!
Here is my entry in fstab of the client:
localhost:/UPSE /UPSE nfs tcp,rw,hard,intr,bg,port=7777,mountport=8888 0 0
Here is my command to setup the tunnels:
/usr/bin/ssh -f -c blowfish -L 7777:localhost:2049 -L 8888:localhost:4002 184.108.40.206 /bin/sleep 60
I have no problem when accessing the share directly with NFS, whithout SSH tunnels. I have just noticed that the file read operation in this case takes more time to complete. I found out that the NFS server sends back the error ERR_JUKEBOX for the first NFS READ operation. Then the client repeats the READ operation 5 sec. later.
Any file locking problem?
Any timeout problem?
Thank you for any help.
