Need help to access/mount so to access folder/files on a Remote System using Linux OS


I need to access files from a specific folder of a Linux system from an another Linux System Remotely.

I know how to, Export a folder on One SCO System & can access the same by using Import via., NFS in the Sco Unix SVR4 System using the scoadmin utility.

Also, I know to use mount -t "source system Ipaddress:/folder to be accessed" "local systems mount point folder where access required" on True64 Unix.

But I want to know how to do the same on Linux OS.

i.e. how to access /usr/user1 of system from system so that I can use them directly from

Probably I know some think like NFS & RFS Services., but not sure.

Please do let me know if u have any IDEAS.

Advance Thankx.

Hi Vishwa,

You could use NFS in linux to share the directory.

in RH linux you put directories you want to export in the /etc/exports file.

To mount the directory you put the relevant entry in /etc/fstab on the client machine and issue the mount command.

The link below goes into more detail about NFS for linux:

Hope this helps.
