    Thanks a lot 🙂

    OK, it looks like this functionality has been removed from Nautilus since Hardy (8.04) from what I see on the Ubuntu Forums. The tool is still available, just not through Nautilus.

    To open the tool:
    Enter the command: shares-admin and click Run. Now click Unlock and enter your password at the prompt. Now you can create a new share.

    Click Add. Select the Path drop-down and select Other..., navigate to and double click the folder you want to share and click Open. Make sure Share through: is set to Unix networks (NFS).

    Click Add in the Allowed Hosts section.

    Leave the Allowed Hosts: drop-down on Specify hostname. Now, in the Host name: field enter
    and click OK. Now click on Share back in the Share Folder window. And finally, click Close in the Shared Folders window.

    Now you can pick back up with the instructions at the point where is says:
    sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart

    As you can see from my previous comment, it's a lot quicker just to make the manual change to the /etc/exports file.

    Thanks for pointing out the problem.

    It looks like something has changed in Nautilus since I did this. You can still do this the manual way. You need to edit /etc/exports.

    sudo gedit /etc/exports

    Then add a line like:

    and then save the file.

    Now continue on the HowTo where it says
    sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart

    About this paragraph in your tutorial...

    "Open Nautilus, (the Ubuntu file manager), and right click on the folder you want to share, (for this example, /home/username/Music), and select Share from the menu. Enter your password if prompted, and then the Share Folder dialog should come up. Modify the Share through: drop-down from Do not share to Unix networks (NFS)."

    I right click the Public folder that I want to share, but I do not see the "Share" in the menu. What I see related are "Sharing Options" and "Properties" and none of them gives me the Share Folder dialog.

    Should I reboot after installing NFS?

    I am running Ubuntu 8.10 - latest version by now Jan 7, 2009.
