Sharing files over a network with NFS

Thursday, 16 September 2004, 2:24 PM EST

Networking RISC OS to a Windows PC is sometimes problematic. Various articles have been written on the issue in the past, whether they be about the physical connection or the configuration of RISC OS and Microsoft Windows.

The traditional way of connecting to Windows machines is via LanMan supplied as part of OmniClient by way of the SMB (or Samba) protocol. LanMan isn't particularly hot, with restrictions on filenames and speed. Much more satisfactory solutions are found in LanMan98 and LanManFS (although the RISC OS 5 version has notable bugs), which can be effective solutions. However, with more recent Windows versions (i.e. XP), it often involves altering settings deep within the Windows Registry in order to make it work.
