NFS is the abbreviation of “Network File System”. This is a service that releases or exports directories on a file server to other computers over the network. Other servers or clients can mount these directories. That is, hook in their file system. Including a directory exported by an NFS server on a local client looks to the user as if that directory is on his local machine.
Windows knows something similar. This is the drive or folder share. However, the NFS shares are not so comfortable to use. For Linux, the administrator of a system must know on which machine the NFS shares are located.[Read more…] about Setup NFS server on Raspberry Pi
