The original question was concerning Wollogong PathWay Client NFS Option
Rel 1.1, whether one has to supply a password for every mount of an
exported file system, even for nobody read-only rights.
The answers were :
- That software had security problems, at least about a year ago, use
PC-NFS from Sun.
- Supply the password needed for every mount from a file with DOS input
- It does require password. You can supply the password only in security
- If nobody has no password (i.e. nobody::-2:-2::/:NONE), you can
mount with "mount d: \\hostname\/exported/path nobody "
As I don't want to have a non-password account on my machines, and I don't
want to write it neither on the command line nor in a separate file, I'll
sit down and write a little C program where the password of nobody is hidden
somehow in the binary, simply calling the mount program with that passwd.
