Hi Sam, many thanks for following up on this problem.
Does your local windows machine has more than 2 (two) hard drives? In my
machine, c: and d: are two different drives.
I have tried by creating /exports/c and /exports/d as explained in the
First I just created /exports/d; mounted and exported it within cygwin
as described. In this situation, mounting it from linux does work just
fine, great!. I can live with just this.
But, if now I follow the same procedure for c then something weird goes one.
Now in cygwin I have c: and d: mounted over /exports/c and /exports/d,
respectively, and my /etc/exports looks like this
/exports/c (ro, no_root_squash)
/exports/d (ro, no_root_squash)
if in linux now I mount /exports/d then what I see by ls-ing its content
is not 'd' but 'c'! Am I clear?
After this strange situation I have exported a third entry, '/usr'. And
yes, it mounts just fine in the remote linux box.
As far as I can tell, I can export 'd' and properly mount it in the
remote machine only when it is the only one.
