Welcome to FreeSoftwareServers Confluence Wiki

To start, I should mention currently only Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8.1 Enterprise and Windows 10 Enterprise & Education offer NFS-Client.

To "install" or activate the NFS-Client simply press start and go to "Add or Remove Programs">>"Turn Windows Features on or Off"

Make sure to expand Services for NFS and tick both sub-directories.

To Mount NFS Share use something like this:

mount! R: && mount F:

To Unmount NFS use something like this:

umount R: -F && umount F: -F

If you use this guide, you should definitely read this guide on Silent CMDs to automate and hide this process. I have MountNFS-Silent in my startup and UnmountNFS-Silent pinned to start-menu. Having Mount-NFS in startup will fail if outside LAN, but no harm really, doesn't affect boot time.

NFS-Client for Windows does not automatically follow Remote Symlinks, please read here to enable.
