MikeL's FreeBSD howto - net setup

NFS:
Most of the work is done on the server (machine making it's drives available to others). On that machine:
  1. Modify NFS fields in /etc/rc.conf.
  2. Peruse the man pages for 'export', 'nfsd', and 'mountd'.
  3. Modify /etc/exports to make available the dirs.
The one thing they forgot to tell you is how to get the system to notice the changes you've just made -- this is not a DOS box, there's no need to reboot.
Use 'ps ax' to list all the system processes. Find the 'mountd' process. Then send a 'kill -HUP ###' signal to that PID.
