NFS and Mount to TIYCam

To run the applications in development on the TIYCam, we can install NFS on the host development computer, in our case, it is ubuntu 20.

Installation of NFS

Use the following command on host development PC to install NFS:
$sudo apt install -y nfs-kernel-server nfs-common -y


$nano /etc/exports
and add:
/home/ubuntu *(rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)
Note there should be no space between rw,sync,no_boot_squash,no_substree_check, otheriwse it will fail to start the NFS.
'home/ubuntu' is the directory of the home directory of host development computer.
To restart the NFS server:
$sudo systemctl restart nfs-server
To check the status of NFS server:
$sudo systemctl status nfs-server

Mount the NFS directory onto TIYCam

Telnet into the TIYcam:
$telnet IPaddress-TIYcam
The username is root, and password is default to be blank.
Use the following command on TIYCam (note: not the host development PC)
$mount -t nfs -o tcp -o nolock IPaddress-of-hostpc:/home/ubuntu /mnt
where IPaddress-of-hostpc is the IP address of the host pc that resides in the same local area network.
