To set up the NFS server you need to set up the configuration files and start NFS.
For NFS to work, you only need to edit /etc/exports. However, this might result in an insecure setup and it is strongly recommended that the relevant changes are made to /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny to prevent security problems.

the system as root on the server.
Note: Please note the potential security implications with this option.
The portmap and associated rpc daemons need to be running before you can start NFS. Refer to the topicTo verify that NFS is running.
