I followed the instructions at http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/NFS_tutorial_-_Get_the_Network_File_System_running#OpenLink_2
to install NFS under Openlink http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/OpenLink. The links on the install page don't seem to exist anymore but I found them at

http://download.linkstationwiki.net/mirrors/www.voicenet.com/ for the binaries and
http://downloads.buffalo.nas-central.org/LS2_MIPSel/Scripts/StartScripts/nfs for the 'nfs' start script

Starting nfs with /etc/init.d/nfs start runs ok and then

rpcinfo -p 127.0.0.1 gives

program vers proto port
100000 2 tcp 111
100000 2 udp 111
100005 1 udp 904
100005 1 tcp 907
100005 2 udp 904

100021 1 tcp 1054
100021 3 tcp 1054
100021 4 tcp 1054

and

ps -A gives

which seems to indicate nfs is running and rpcinfo -p <another NAS box ip> returns similar info so this seems all ok so far.

Attempting to mount a share on another NAS box gives an error and the share is not mounted

mount <ip>:/<share_name> /<mount_point>
mount: fs type nfs not supported by kernel

The Linux version in Openlink is v2.4.20 from
uname -r
2.4.20_mipsel_linkstation

Both the source share_name and mount_point do exist.

Does the 2.4.20 kernel really not support nfs? Do I need a later version of Openlink?
Any help with fixing this would be appreciated!

Cheers

Please report what is returned by
Code:
showmount --all 127.0.0.1

It returns nothing

bash-2.05a# showmount --all 127.0.0.1
All mount points on 127.0.0.1:

I also tried mount -t cifs..... and mount -t smbfs..... but got the same error message 'mount: fs type xxx not supported by kernel'

btw, did I use the wrong forum?

If nothing is returned, no exports are defined.
Did you put something into /etc/exports ?
It is not clear to me WHERE you tried all this
mount stuff. On the NFS server MIPSEL LS or
on the machine you are using to access the
NFS server MIPSEL LS?
You do know how NFS is working in principle?
If not, you can read this:

Ah yes, I see I was not clear on that point. All this was tried on the LS2. I want the LS2 to be a client to another server (a Promise NS4300N NAS box) so that Apache on the LS2 can serve out files from the mounted fs. I do not have root access to the other NAS so cannot put Apache on there.

I did put something in LS2 /etc/exports so that my Kubuntu box can access the LS2 (LS2=server). That works fine. The NS4300N shares are mounted on the Kubuntu box and that works fine too.

Perhaps the LS2 cannot be an client, for NFS or anything.

Sorry, but I have no clue at the moment what is
needed for NFS client access. Maybe you need
some kernel modules for the "missing" filesystems.
Unfortunately I do not own a MIPSEL LS and can't
help you further.

It can still probably do alot if you can find a few guys who still have one

Try these links, and see if they help you, the location of the original modules is gone I think, but we have mirrors of them on the linkstationwiki.

Edit I just realized you are trying to use the ls as a client. I wonder if freelibk would work better for you for this purpose?

Does anyone know where the binaries for NFS are now. The old links don't work. I don't see them on the linkstation wiki downloads pages.
