[ As mentioned in a previous posting: ]
We will be implementing a fairly large, multi-server/multi-site network.
Systems to be networked include PC's (>100) and several unix systems (~6).
The PC's need access to file servers, 3270 gateways, and direct access
to other unix systems on the network.
[ Many replies to the above posting recommended PC-NFS as a possible solution. ]
In general, what services does PC-NFS provide for the PC user?
(I.e., file sharing, printer services, EMail, modems, rlogin, gateways,...)
Can the PC component of PC-NFS run on XT's?
How much memory does the PC component of PC-NFS use?
How does the performance of PC-NFS compare with other PC servers?
How does PC-NFS interact with the host Unix machine?
We would like to build a file structure that could span multiple Unix
hosts which are NFS'ed together. Can a PC get access to all the NFS'ed
filesystems on the various hosts through the single PC-NFS host?
Here's a picture:
| Unix host |
| running | <<<-----<-------<------<-------<-------<-----+
| NFS | |
| (Ethernet Lan B) ^
| Unix host | |
| running | ^
| NFS+PC-NFS| |
| (Ethernet Lan A) ^
| PC | <<<--- Can this PC access files from here --+
| running |
| PC-NFS |
Please reply via E-Mail and I will post a summary.
