#suse's /etc/fstab /dev/sdb1 /windows/FAT vfat users,uid=1000,gid=100,rw,utf8=true
#/etc/exports /windows/FAT 192.168.0.0/24(rw,root_squash,no_subtree_check)

The main problem I was having was mapping different UID/GID over NFS v3. I managed to just have different ‘usernames’ but same UID/GID that would mount the share. And it sorta works. I can `touch’ a file on the terminal after mounting (NFS), but in both Nautilus and Thunar (on Mint v8) I get permission denied when i try to create new file → but a brand-new file appears in the file browser after refresh!
I run opensuse 11.2 with NFS3 sharing a FAT32 partition /windows/FAT. The username is ‘felipe’ with UID=1000 and GID=100. I mounted it with `uid=1000,gid=100’ vfat mount options (see above).
Ubuntu 9.10 machine (mint actually) connects to it successfully, but the user connecting to it is under a different username (ruben), different GID (1000), but same UID=1000.
I’m not sure if the error is in the /etc/exports, in the Mint `mount -t nfs’ command or in the file browsers nautilus and thunar.
Why do I get these errors in Nautilus/Thunar and not in a terminal?
How can I prevent these from happening?
What is the best way to share files from GNU to GNU machine?**
And clues or ideas would be very much appreciated!
(ps - nfs v4 is not possible ATM)
