Exporting Directories

NFS allows you to export a directory onto the network. This can be done with the /etc/exports file by creating a line that looks like this:


This exports the /disk directory to the whole class C network. Any machine on that network may then mount the filesystem and both read and write to it. You could also pick to export to just one machine if you wanted to with a line like this:


You can also export to machines by name.
