Service Name: nfs

#yum install nfs*

Go to #vim /etc/exports

Type the following line. Here /var/ftp/pub is the directory to be shared on network.

/var/ftp/pub            *(rw,sync)

 

To share the directory for particular IP address.

/var/ftp/pub            192.168.1.110(rw,sync)

 

To share the directory particular domain, here we are going to share for example.com

/var/ftp/pub            example.com(rw,sync)

 

To share the directory for particular network.

/var/ftp/pub            192.168.1.0/24(rw,sync)
