Setting-up an NFS client for just one user
The following procedure allows NFS to work for a single user or a set of them, without using NIS or LDAP authentication. 1. Create a group in the target (client) machine. In this example gid_number and GroupName represent the gid and name of the group in the server machine, with exact capitalisation.
2. Create a user in the target (client) machine. In this example ID and UserName represent the uid and name of the user in the server machine and gid_number the gid of the previously created group, with exact capitalisation.
3. Test the setup by mounting the required folder. It should be being exported in the server machine.
4. Edit /etc/fstab accordingly.
