You only need the NFS client which is part of SUA (SFU). There is nothing wrong with that NFS client. It is working as intended. The reason you are having a problem is that Windows and Unix use different authentication mechanisms.

The correct longterm solution is to use AD/LDAP. A quick "fix" is to add your UID and GID to two new DWORDs (AnonymousUid and AnonymousGid) under the following registry key:
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\clientForNFS\CurrentVersion\Default

Do an Internet search and you will find plenty of documentation about this "fix"

Avoid Samba like the plague. It is seriously buggy.

MOUNT.NFS(8)						      System Manager's Manual						      MOUNT.NFS(8)

NAME
mount.nfs, mount.nfs4 - mount a Network File System SYNOPSIS
mount.nfs remotetarget dir [-rvVwfnsh ] [-o options] DESCRIPTION
mount.nfs is a part of nfs(5) utilities package, which provides NFS client functionality. mount.nfs is meant to be used by the mount(8) command for mounting NFS shares. This subcommand, however, can also be used as a standalone command with limited functionality. remotetarget is a server share usually in the form of servername:/path/to/share. dir is the directory on which the file system is to be mounted. Under Linux 2.6.32 and later kernel versions, mount.nfs can mount all NFS file system versions. Under earlier Linux kernel versions, mount.nfs4 must be used for mounting NFSv4 file systems while mount.nfs must be used for NFSv3 and v2. OPTIONS
-r Mount file system readonly. -v Be verbose. -V Print version. -w Mount file system read-write. -f Fake mount. Don't actually call the mount system call. -n Do not update /etc/mtab. By default, an entry is created in /etc/mtab for every mounted file system. Use this option to skip making an entry. -s Tolerate sloppy mount options rather than fail. -h Print help message. nfsoptions Refer to nfs(5) or mount(8) manual pages. NOTE
For further information please refer nfs(5) and mount(8) manual pages. FILES
