First off, make sure your XP box is serving up NFS shares correctly.  If you are
having problems with NFS sharing on your XP box, see the other tech documents
on properly setting up NFS sharing on Windows XP servers.

On the MasonIP configuration page, under the Servers tab, you will need to enter
in the server and mount point information.  NFS shares off of XP boxes have
different mount point paths than all other types of NFS servers, so make sure
you enter in the data correctly.


Here are the MasonIP server page settings for NFS shares off of XP Servers :

Address-  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx   [the IP number of the server]
Type- NFS
Mount Point- :(driveletter)/(path of directory shared)   [notice the colon is first]
User Name- (username)   [Username on the XP server that is mapped to the NFS share]
Password- (userpassword)   [password of the Username]


Example data for MasonIP Server setup:

Address-
192.168.10.5

Type-
NFS

Mount Point-
:c/mediafiles/movies

User Name-
Brian

Password-
(Brian's password)
