Thanks for the testing and the feedback.
New packages are available at http://www.oneparticularharbor.net/cygwin/.
- README files now in /usr/doc
- Added some simple usage notes to README files
- Added (very) basic "nfs-server-config" script installed in /usr/bin.
- Quieted verbose debug status messages that were going to event log
("patching broken dirent d_ino..." && "patching d_ino...")
- /etc/exports lines like the following seem to work fine:
...where UID=501/GID=546 map to the Guest account.
The default implementation for the server is to map anonymous requests
to user "nobody".
Question: would using "Guest" by default make more sense for Cygwin?
- I've seen some odd permissions behavior on rw exports. I very much
recommend keeping mounts ro unless you want to take a look at these
problems close up :-/
